Thank you Janice for speaking up. I agree with you NOT to pre-label. I
work next to a histo tec that has "been doing this forever" and watch
every morning while she numbers slides. At the same time I am cutting
slides and providing immediate patient care. My batch is on the warmer at
least 15 minutes before she even has a slide cut ... and guess what ...
when I look at the error log ... guess who has the number errors ... it's
The same thing goes for the pathologist that cut in ... one of our
pathologist insists one pulling all the requisitions away from the stocked
specimens and pre-numbers the blocks ... guess who makes the most number
mistakes ... it's not the pathologists that numbers as he goes.
