Time Off-Coverage

From:Travis Troyer

Our lab is a smaller lab consisiting of two full time histotechs, a grossing tech, and a Pathologist Assistant.  We are having a hard time deciding on how to deal with time off for techs when the histotech time frame is 5:30am-1:30pm and the grossing time frame is 11:30am-6:00pm.  We also do some cytology fluid prep work. I am trying to figure out a good solution so that nobody gets burned out and everything is covered.  Our current workload is enough that a single tech can't handle either the grossing or the microtomy alone.  Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you
