In our LIS we have one screen that we can customize what appears. We 
have created a section for quality control and have various topics that 
only require the user to check the box. We also have a section for free 
text.  Some topics include block mislabeled, slide mislabeled, 
requisition incomplete, etc. A monthly report is run compiling the data 
by problem. For issues outside Pathology, a supervisor will talk with 
the offenders.
