RE: [Histonet] histologist/pathologist ratio

From:mucram11@comcast.net (Pam Marcum)

Mary and Rene,

Your point is extemely taken and understood however, I have never heard of any regulations for histology regarding number of techs.  It is frightening when one thinks about it.  In my years it was always handled as an internal matter.

Hopefully if there is a hard and fast rule some one will give the reference for us.
