RE: Christmas Eve Question
Same here. I'm the supervisor and I sent everyone home by 9:00 AM. They
went... kicking and screaming (You think I joke? No, I have the best
staff)I'm doing glassware and waiting for the IHC to come out and I'm GONE.

We're here, a couple of staff short. Yesterday was a record workload day for
us. It must be worse for the patients who we are working on - as we have
some very seriously ill folk here.
We have a lighter surgery day, but nevertheless full. We'll be back on
Blessings to all. j

Subject: Christmas Eve Question
Just out of curiosity, does anyone out there in histo-land still get
Christmas Eve off as a holiday? We got it off up until 5 years ago when we
became a reference lab. Now, all of our outside clients feel obliged to cut
their staff loose for Christmas Eve and hammer my lab with all of their work
with no feelings of guilt that I am working on a skeleton crew as well. I
was lucky enough to put in an 11 hour day yesterday and have no idea when
I'll get out of here today. I think that the Christmas spirit is something
that reference lab histotechs can only hear about because we have no time to
enjoy it ourselves. Ahhh, Christmas venting feels so good.
