Oh what an ugly scene it is when pathologists start to bicker and squabble
over workload!  Personally, I find it quite unbecoming from professionals
who are well paid.  At present our pathologists have settled on being
allocated 10 cases each on a rotational basis.  This is done at cut up
(grossing/dissection) by the lab staff and the rotation continues from one
day to the next.  Most of the time there are no squabbles but it does not
completely eliminate lab staff being abused by a pathologist because they
have been allocated several large or difficult cases.  They also have a
roster for frozen sections, meetings and renals.

Hope this helps.  Good luck!
