We document the special stain results and the control results on the pathology report.   We have a protocol that states all stains will be reviewed by the tech doing the stain before they are given to the pathologist so there should never be a poor review on the pathology report.  We have a form that the pathologist can fill out and return to the department supervisor if there is a problem with the stain they receive.  We also put a note on the case in the computer to document why a case may have taken longer than expected to sign out due to a problem with a special stain.
If I have be of any more help let me know.
