Re: [Histonet] fine needle aspirates assisting

From:"Rebecca Barnhart"

We are also a small hospital (1 pathologist, 1.5 histo tech and 1 cyto
tech).  We are just the opposite, we did not use to go to but know we
do.  The pathologist goes and either myself or the cyto tech goes along
to help.  The pathologist will look at the slides and tell the
radiologist if the sample was good enough for a diagnosis.  This
eliminates the patient having to be stuck several times if the first
sample is diagnostic.

We used to go to the radiology department to receive specimens.  
However, we are a small hospital pathology department with only 2 
techs (day shift) and someone was not always available to assist.  So 
we wrote up complete, simple instructions on how to handle the 
specimens, order them, and deliver them to the lab.  They do a fine 
job without us.
