Re: QA Daily H&E's

From:Rena Fail <>

 We have devised a simple log sheet for QA of H&E's. A slide from a uterus
control block is the first slide stained. One of the first Pathologist in
reviews it and signs  the sheet. Acceptable or unacceptable with room for
comments and space to note corrective action.  
 Our lab manager believes we "should own our work" The cutters are required
to put their initials on their slides. You would be surprised at how picky
people get when their initials are on the slide. If any problms arise later
with the slide all the coordinator or manager needs to do is peel back the
label to see who cut it.
