RE: Who does IHC?

From:"Willis, Donna"

15 FTE and only 2 performing IHC.  It is a specialized procedure that often
can not be performed by every technician.

Subject: Who does IHC?

I need a little help and would like to take a little survey.  My lab manager
tells me that she wants everyone in my department to be able to do
everything.  I have no problem with that in general and it has always been
my philosophy.  A problem has developed with IHC however.  A couple of folks
just have not gotten the hang of it causing a lot of repeats and
unhappy/mistrusting pathologists.  I want to limit the number of people
performing IHC but I cannot convince my manager.  She says to re-train them
(again).  And so to my questions.....

1. How many techs do you have and how many of those are performing IHC?

2. Is it true that the state of New York requires an HTL to perform IHC?

I would greatly appreciate any and all feedback.  Thank you in advance.
