Pathology Service Standards

I noticed local circles is doing polls on path labs. Sink tests are very common at pathlabs. My question here is are there customer rights or service standards for path labs. If not BIS must set them up.

Those who dont know sink tests:
Sink testing is a form of medical laboratory diagnostics healthcare fraud whereby clinical specimens are discarded, via a sink drain, and fabricated results are reported, without the clinical specimen actually being tested. more

What common man can do expect blindly trusting them. There must be regulatory authority to protect the interests of the people. more  
Quality should be checked on regular interval by competent authority. more  
Sir, the lab in question is a huge one for the public and charges very little money. Since my maid is poor she went there. I wanted to challenge them but did not. I checked the urine sample from three labs and they were all the same. Very high count of pseudomonas aureginosa. You can see the reports if you wish.

There are thousands and thousands Pathological laboratories and most are fake. They don't have proper laboratory, proper testing equipments and even their pathologists / radiologists are incompetent. There is no uniformity in rates and they charge exhorbitantly. It is high time that Govt. shld regulate them and fix their rates on different tests. more  
Make Sure about Qualifications of Doctors Managing Path Labs. Be Individualistic.
Be wary of 2 comments written below the report-
We Are Not Legally Responsible & Co-relate Clinically ( means that the treating doctor is responsible!)

We As Doctors Have to do 'Window' Shopping to Search the Best Pathologist in our areas & Believe Me that It is Worth the effort.
There are Good Pathologists who do Not Shy Away from signing & putting a stamp with registration number on reports,on samples sent to their well equipped labs. more
