Number of Tech's vs. number of blocks
We're in the process of trying to find out how many Histology
Technician/Technologist are needed to run a lab efficently.
We have four registered histology techs and one grossing room tech.
Half of the day, one of the histology techs helps out with doing Cytology
We average 205 blocks per day. Three techs are cutting and one is putting
all the slides together. The grossing room tech cuts the frozens but
sometimes we have to help him out.
We do not do immuno's but we do special stains. Of course, the number of
sp. stains, recuts, etc. vary. We stay busy. I'm the supervisor,and am
also a bench tech. Most of my supervisory work gets pushed aside.
If any of you could, please take a minute to give me some feedback so we'll
know if we're over worked or not! And yes, there are many days when at
least one or two of us work overtime.
Thanks in advance ,
