I don't know why it is not included in the guidelines for histology.
However, no lab hospital, research or industry that I know of will allow you
not to initial and date either the making or opening of reagents or stains.
We again seemed to be ignored by the overall governing bodies as a lower
grade lab.  Sorry sometimes I just get really tried of being treated like
the step child no matter what area of histology I am in.  We simply need to
follow the best lab procedures we can and find a way to be recognized more
fully through NSH or by fighting with the governing bodies like ASCP.

I was looking for written proof of how we are required to initial and date
our reagents. I could not find them in our CAP guidelines (Anatomic
Pathology). I searched the General Lab guidelines - no luck. Why are these
included in each department except ours? Does this mean that we really don't
have to date and initial?
