Fwd: RE: (no subject)


My second supervisor 20 years ago was a know-it-all who fabricated his credentials. He first rearranged the lab: put chemicals above the heater and my favorite--insisted on formalin on the processor without adjusting the times for dehydration. That was a mushy day. Another day he sat down to "help" with coverslipping. Granted one gets better with experience but my I could not stop my smart mouth. I asked him if he meant for the coverslip to be only half over the tissue.
It makes the day long to have to supervise the supervisor.

Again, I don't think it's MT vs.. HT.  I think many times managers and supervisors feel the need to exert their power and control rather than use common sense.  This is often the case in all professions, not just ours.  (Oh, and I doubt seriously that the story was fabricated.  I don't see that it would have served any purpose.)  Just my opinion.

well spoken Dana, too often is the listserver used to serve the  egos. as long as one is willing to learn, work for the patient,  and serve the hospital then good for them. the others who simple put down med techs just because they are med tech serve no useful purpose. the tech that related a story, which i doubt is true, about the med tech manager that couldn''t coverslip and didn't help her do it right did a disservice to the hospital and to the patient. i hope all that said HERE HERE are reading this.
