We send out a QC sheet daily with slides for the day.   The docs sign
off on this sheet noting the quality of the slides and return it to our
lab.   On the sheet it is just a matter of them checking off the slide
review and if they are acceptable or not.

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
