RE: [Histonet] "Predictation"

From:"Poteete, Jacquie A."

Our nine pathologists have been known to "predict" results, but several were
burned doing it, so the practice has stopped.  If they predict anything now,
it's on a notepad or in their head. Our various hospital committees look
closely at supplemental reports, especially the corrected variety.
