[Histonet] mislabeling of slides and blocks

If mistakes occur, the lab protocols must be altered to prevent the mistakes. 

 If personnel can not or will not follow protocol to eliminate mistakes, then employment must be terminated.    

This is not being "picky" or unreasonable - ask any potential cancer patient relying on an accurate diagnosis.

Currrently I am working in a lab where I am the only tech., but in
previous labs when mislabeling happened, the tech would be written up
for it after one formal verbal warning.  If they were written up 3 times
in 6 months, then a suspension was possible (although never happens),
then if the problem continued could lead to being fired.  So, basically
you would have to mislabel something or another 6 times in one year to
be fired.
Again...just my opinion...
