We give the control to the pathologist daily  - who initials
satisfactory or not... problems are dealt with by techs usually before
path gets here tho.

There is a new question on the CAP checklist:

ANP.11713 - Phase II 

"Is there documented evidence of daily review of technical quality of
histologic preparations by the pathologist?"


Our present procedure is the supervisor/technologist documents daily
review, but it is very clear that CAP is requiring the pathologist

to initial a document daily proving they have reviewed the technical
quality of slides.

How are other hospitals satisfying this requirement?  It seems crazy to
make a pathologist initial a document daily,

when it is evident they review hundreds of slides a day, and they would
certainly report a problem to the supervisor when the stain is
