"Returned due to suspicious content; was:" Re: Transplant info for Histopathology
When I was a supervisor the hospital I was with was a transplant center for
heart, liver, kidney, and whatever else. I staffed someone on call on the
weekends for 24 hrs. The techs rotated through the on-call. I also had a
late tech who worked until 5:00. If there was an emergency overnite, the
residents loaded to tissue onto a processor with a short schedule so that
it would be worked on first thing in the morning. I was lucky to have 4
I think the most stress was caused with the heart patients. We never had
many problems with the other patients. I think it is important to have a
short schedule for the biopsies since the patients can be biopsied at any
time if they are rejecting.
Hope this helps.

Subject: Transplant info for Histopathology
Our medical center is preparing to become an liver transplant center.
There is very little information for histopathology such as the
necessity for rapid diagnosis, frozen sections, emergency processing
programs, immunoperoxidase, etc. Does anyone out there in Histoland have
any experience with this and can you give me some idea of what I'll be
facing, such as staffing issues, on-call, etc.
TIA for your help
