Re: Quality-right first time?

From:Louri Caldwell <> (by way of histonet)


I do have experience in both settings myself, actually, but only at one
human clinical hospital.  The pathologists there were also great about
discussing cases/problems.  I was fortunate to have the opportunity to learn
from them as well as having the experience I have had here with the vet
paths.  I thought pretty much all docs would want to help their techs learn
in order to allow them to do a better job - but I guess some just don't have
or take the time.  I guess I've just been lucky?

I'm really intersted to hear what others experiences have been- especially
since I have techs here that go into human clinical settings after
certification - I would hate to mislead them with my own good experience of
what that setting is like if that is not the norm.  I'm so glad you asked -
it never dawned on me that it may be otherwise!
