From:"Weems, Joyce"

For those involved with Cytology, would you please reply to me

We have one full time Cytology Tech Specialist and 0.5 lab assistant for
cyto prep. We are a low volume non-gyn lab (2500 cases YTD) - totally
ThinPrep except for thyroid aspirates that come from one practice with
up to 5 extra smeared slides. Workload has decreased and is sporadic.
The extra time could definitely be used for manual preparation, CAP
prep, QC/QA, etc. I've been asked to decrease lab asst hours, but tech
says TAT would not be met if that happens. 

Would you all share your process with me? How much is expected from your

Thanks very much - have a good weekend everybody!  j
