Hi folks,

Wondering if many labs have on-call Histotechs?  We currently don't, but our
docs are interested in having something more formal than the scramble that
happens when they REALLY need a stat GMS or AFB on the weekends.  I realize
there are a variety of ways to do call systems, and would appreciate some
input on what your lab does.  Do you rotate?  How often?  Are you paid for
the entire call time, or just the time you are called in?  How are you
notified; home phone, cell phone, pager?  Any info would be VERY helpful :-)
