Overworked Histonetters --
Has anyone developed a histology duties spreadsheet that can be used to
evaluate the need for additional staff (FTE) in a hospital based Histology
Lab?  Last week, I attended an ASCP teleconference on a Model for Evaluating
Cytopathology Staffing Needs.   I would like to work on a model for our
histology staffing needs.  I am working on a spreadsheet but fear it may be
either too complex or too simplified.  We have two HTs to cover 5  (7.5 hr/
day) days a week, rotation on weekends (4-8 hours), and cover each other for
sickness, required and unscheduled time off ?,  vacation ?, etc.  Continuing
ed. and team meetings are a thing of the past.  I need a solid, flag waving
justification for a part-time HT ready for presentation in the next few
weeks.  Help!
