New Report Says Other State Labs Have Problems

An outside review of 17 labs in the same state building that housed the lab at the center of a drug -testing scandal found that they, too, had problems.
 
    The Association of Public Health Laboratories report, obtained by the Boston Herald, makes 18 recommendations for the Hinton State Laboratory, where labs test for mosquito-borne illnesses, rabies, and other things.
 
    The report found the facility generally maintains “good laboratory practice,” but notes the labs face “threats,” including a top-heavy leadership structure; a “perceived lack” of communication between lower-level workers and management; and an inconsistent employee performance review system.
 
    The interim director says the recommendations are being taken seriously.
