RE: [Histonet] Frozen section turnaround time

From:"Weems, Joyce"

We count per block - if 24 min for a 3 blk frozen, it is 8 min each, etc.

Subject: [Histonet] Frozen section turnaround time

Hello to everyone in histoland.  I have a question concerning frozen section turnaround time.  When you do your turnaround time report do you do it based on multiple sections or single sections.  The bulk of our cases are multiple block frozens.  They never meet the 20 min. time limit.  The report that I turn in never meets the 100% compliance rate based on my numbers.  Would someone be willing to share a report with me.  My manager is concerned that we are not being compliant.  Thanks in advance.
