From:"Luck, Greg D."

Our blocks and slides are locked up as well.  Any requests are processed
through the transcription staff and are checked out in a log book.  In
addition an electronic "marker" is attached to the case in Meditech.
This filter is removed when the materials are returned.  We do searches
on a regular basis to look for long standing attached markers that may
need a follow-up.

We have them in a separate building, under lock and key, with request
made in advance (by Email is fine).  They belong to the hospital.  A
tight control will save you from Litigation one day!

Short of keeping all slides under "lock and key", what are labs doing to
keep track of patient slides that are removed from the pathology file by
residents, fellows, and attending staff?  Do you have them sign-out the
slides if they are going to have them for more than, say 24 hours?  We
are constantly looking for slides that are not in the file.  Thanks.
