RE: [Histonet] Tech to doc ratio

From:"Poteete, Jacquie A."

A note from Patti's last hospital.  We now have 9 pathologists, 4 full time
and 1 part time histologists, 3 lab aides, do 300+ blocks per day, and 1 IHC
Tech who does 40-80 slides per day.  I think they are thinking about adding
another pathologist, plus CISH testing.

We have 7 full time IHC techs, 1 full time & 2 part-time histologists, 1 lab
aide, 3 full time pathologists, and 1 fellow. We run 300-400 immuno slides a
day, and 10-20+ FISH cases. We are a reference lab. The last hospital based
'routine' histo lab that I worked in had 1 lab aide, 5 full time techs, 1
IHC tech and 6- 7 pathologists. We did about 250 blocks a day.
