Introduction: Audit is an organized and documented process in which qualified and trained auditors evaluate the laboratories using tools such as checklists. This study was designed and conducted to survey the audit process in medical laboratories of Hamadan province.
Methods and Materials: This study was cross-sectional and retrospective research. Laboratories of Hamadan province were studied during the period of 2014 to 2021. Data were entered into SPSS software version 16 based on the checklists and records of medical laboratories in the reference laboratory. Data were analyzed using Cairo test by comparing the significance level of P-value <0.05.
Results: The number of audits performed in a period of 7 years (2014 to 2021) had a significant difference with respect to the P-value = 0.024. The most audits were performed in 2016 with an average of 20.9% (P-value 0.021). The highest nonconformities were related to 2020 with an average of 26.5% (P value = 0.0001). The most corrective action was done in 2020 with an average of 70% (P-value = 0.0001).
Discussion and Conclusion: The audit process has been established during this period. The most corrective action has been done in 2021, which indicates the concern of laboratories to fix nonconformities and more supervision of relevant organizations.
