Re: [Histonet] document for recording special stain results for quality control

From:Rene J Buesa

Hi Nancy:
  We used to "batch" special stains (1 positive control for slides with the same procedure, either IHC, HC or even Her-2new), so we had a "common" form where we used to write the date, the test we batched, and the cases numbers included in the batch.
  We checked if the control reacted as expected, attached the form and the control to the batched slides and gave them to the pathologist.
  The form was originally signed by the histotech who did the test and it was also signed by the pathologist.
  All the forms were filed by the type of test (Steiner, IHCs on the day, PAS, etc.) and were available for inspection.
  In our last CAP inspection we were told that this was a good procedure.
  I hope this will help you!
