I received this question from my Quality Manager today.

 Hi Joyce,
What do you consider good performance regarding this?  I need some sort of goal for our lab key control points chart.
I could only find one reference on the internet from Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte, NC from 1993 (yuck).  Their goal was 90% of the slides on time which they correlated to 2 days or less late slides per month. Their goal was also to have all the slides out by 11am......

Could I get feedback from you guys about what you expect for this PI goal? I'd like 100%, but sometimes staffing just doesn't stretch far enough!!
