The QC filled by the pathologists is a good step and can be considered enough. The thing is that from day-to-day or stain batch-to-batch you could have a difference and you should not add to that variability the intrinsic variability of all the cases reviewed by the pathologists (everyday different).
This meaning that you should have a standard section type for the QC. Because of all its components, I always used appendix as my QC daily section. They will also be filed with the date it was stained and reviewed.

Howdy fellow Histo Techs,


  I am hoping to get an answer from everyone regarding C.A.P. and the
rules about a daily H&E control.  This year will be the first one for
our lab with CAP, I want to know if there is a regulation about having a
daily H&E control to view and if so what tissue do they want used.  Up
till now each day I give my Pathologist a QC sheet to fill out and I
make any changes the next day if there are any problems.  My pathologist
use the daily slides as a control.  Is this enough or do I need to have
record of a control separate from my daily workload?  Thanks in advance
for you help.
