[Histonet] Re: Histology workload standards

From:"Zajic Kari"

Hi Laura...
If you find any, please let me know! There seems to be standards set in place for Pathologists and Cytotechnologists but none for Histotechs! Just FYI, we had about 7,500 cases and 600 cytologies with 2 full time techs. It was shear mayhem sometimes! We really needed another tech. Loosing my second tech and never filling the third position, we ended up "outsourcing" to another lab for processing and now with just me, I accession and do all the frozen sections. We are still pulling the same workload numbers, but the processing and cutting/staining,etc is done at another facility.
