We call the office and have someone come and label it.  They are pretty good about coming.  If no one came, we'd send it back to them.  We also have a form that the person labeling it has to fill out and sign stating that they are certain of the identity and are accepting responsibility for the labeling.  Yeah, they don't like that form very much!

Subject: [Histonet] Cytology Question

Hey Histonetters!
  I'm posting a question for a collegue of mine.  She works in cytolgoy.  She would like to know how other people handle unlabeled/mislabeled PAP specimens.  What is your policy?  She posted on a cyto forum, but has not had any luck getting responses.  I figured since some histo techs also do cytology prep someone here could help her.  Thanks in advance.
