RE: [Histonet] H&E quality check

From:"Weems, Joyce"

We do 1 or 2 per full tray - recording wrinkles, folds, poor staining,
etc. to get an approximate 10% reviewed.

Thanks for all of the replies. I guess I need to rephrase my question.
I'm wondering how many slides are reviewed daily under the scope for
cutting artifacts, incomplete margins, etc. Where I worked before, we
checked 10% of the slides under the scope before sending them on to the
Pathologists. Do other labs do this?

Everywhere I have worked there was a liver control slide run daily for
Q.C. The techs checked the staining quality before beginning staining
for the day. The slide was dated and documented in the log book.

[Histonet] H&E quality check

Just curious as to how other hospital labs quality check their H&E
Do most review a percentage microscopically?
