Once again, I appeal to great experience and knowledge of yoou people.  A
couple of weeks ago, I asked about transplant biopsy processing (the
response was great)  Back on the same subject.  How many of you that are
working in a transplant center have coverage 24 hours, 7 days a week.  My
pathologists and I are engaging in a discussion about this. My previous
experience at a military hopsital was that renal and liver transplant
patients rejected their organs after 5:00 PM and on weekends.  I explained
that to the pathologists, but they seem unconvinced.  I have a plan of
attack in hand, but I am not convinced that the pathologists are ready for
transplant pathology.  Does anyone provide 24/7 coverage?  Again, I thank
you in advance.
