I work in a dialysis unit. Our lab reports anti-HBs results as adequate or inadequate, rather than providing a quantitative result. Is this acceptable?

Reporting of adequate and inadequate is acceptable only if your lab is using mIUs as the measurement for anti-HBs and the cutoff is below 10 mIU for reporting inadequate anti-HBs and 10 mIU or higher for reporting adequate anti-HBs. You should check with your lab to be certain this is being done.
