[Histonet] Grossing


   Currently I am grossing in the small specimens and I do all the
miscellaneous stuff, plus all my paper work that a supervisor has to do..
Grossing consumes 2 hrs of my morning and generally do not start until
between 8:30-9:00. My shift ends at 2:30. My co-worker works the night shift
(10-6) and embeds, cuts and stains (literally). I want to get some opinions.
Since I already accession, gross, etc... Is it fair for the pathologists to
want me also to do the recuts and special stains? I feel an enormous
pressure about this issue and I simply can't understand why some
pathologists act like it's so detrimental to be able to view slides and get
recuts/special stains the same day. I do not want to be rushed through
grossing to accommodate 2 of the 3 pathologists. Am I right or wrong for
feeling this way. I need feedback.
