[Histonet] Special Stains and Internal Controls

From:"Laurie Colbert"

We want to stop running control tissue for retic and trichrome stains when the patient tissue is liver since liver is an internal control for these stains.  Are there others out there who do this and have you ever had a problem during an inspection?  I am concerned about question ANP.21400 on the CAP checklist that says, "Are controls run routinely on all special stains, with reactivity results documented, and are they verified for acceptability before reporting results?"
