> 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.
