> We are a 322 bed hospital with an extensive outreach program.  In 1999 we
> had 38245 blocks, with just over 15,000 cases.  We had around 17,000 PAP
> cases.  Non-gyne cases are included in the 15,000.
> I oversee histology, cytology and transcription and work the bench.  There
> are 3 full time histotechs, in addition to myself.  We have one lab
> assistant who accessions and assists the pathologist with the grossing.
> Another lab assistant is responsible for the accessioning and staining of
> the PAPs, and preparation and staining of the non-gyn specimens.  We do
> special stains and immunos (Ventana).  I am responsible for the QA,
> procedure manuals, charging etc.  Chemical hygiene for the lab is mine and
> I share safety officer duties with a Med Tech.  All slide filing,
> maintenance etc is shared by the staff.  We do very few autopsies but if
> there is one a histotech will assist.
