Hello, I have been reading with interest on all the feedback about entering specimens, and am totally flabbergasted that a) you have secretaries and transcriptionists who WILLINGLY do this and b)those who have a computer system STILL use logbooks--hello, let's save some trees here!  Yes, use manual entry when the system goes down, but the whole purpose of a computerized system is to let the computer and only the computer assign numbers.  I have used both Sunquest and Meditech and have worked in labs where everyone from the lab assistant to histotech to cytotech to path assistants to pathologists will accession specimens, but NEVER the office people!
