Re: [Histonet] Grossing
it depends on the number of recuts and specials. Before I became a PA
trainee, I was doing everything also and it was tough, not going to deny it.
I had to prioritize tasks and let the paperwork go until the end of the day
or do it while the slides were in the oven or staining. Often, I came in
over the weekend to catch up on paperwork.
I was told that hiring another person was out of the question, until I
ended up in the hospital with heart problems. It got their attention, but I
don't recommend it.
I would prioritize and do the best you can do. Don't run yourself into
the ground, no job is worth sacrificing your health. Trust me, I know.
