RE: Time Off-Coverage

From:"Bell, Lynne"

We are an even smaller histology lab than you have, Travis.  We have two
fulltime histologists, no grossing tech or PA.  Our pathologists do all
the grossing.  However, I have trained two Med Techs from the clinical
lab and they help us out for days off and for vacations.  The Med Techs
don't do the immunos, but they can certainly embed and cut and do simple
special stains.  They have been a lifesaver for us.
