  For a laboratory I used to manage with quite similar annual workload we had the following schedule:
  1- last tissue accepted at 7:00 PM;
  2- two VIPs atarting with delay to be finished at 4:00 AM next day;
  3- Rushes ready for the pathologists at 8:00 AM next day;
  4-All slides ready, the latest, at 1:00 PM.
  5- All IHC ready by 2 PM
  6- all HC ready by noon.

  Hello Fellow Histo Tech's,
Will anyone be willing to share the delivery time of the last tray of H&E for the days workload to the pathologist reading them? 
What is your cutoff time for specimen acceptance? What is your annual case workload?
I am trying to improve the TAT from specimen gross to the H&E delivered to the pathologist. Unless we change the cutoff time I can not see how I can do this? Any suggestions? 
We process 22,000 cases a year an average of 280 blks a day consisting of types of tissue. 
Please Help
