justifying histology FTE


      Hello Histonetters,

      I was wandering what or how some of you are justifying your FTE?  We use to do workload for justification showing how many blocks/slides/stains are being done in the histology lab, but now all that is being asked for is billable test. This by no means justifies FTE.  Ex: we can have one billable test but this one test can include as many as 10 or more blocks and slides. They are wanting to decrease hours and/or even take away one FTE and one part-timer. There is no-way our workload will get down with only two employees. And for some reason Administration does not seem to care about our/my patients. It seems as though the bottom line is $$$$. Any input would be appreciated!
