Our techs document that the controls work. My dream would be that the pathologist would document in the report with a phrase something like "Controls stain appropriately".

How do others document the results of routine special stain controls to be acceptable before reporting patient results (CAP  checklist item ANP.21395)?  Do the histotechs document the results or do the pathologists - or both??  If your pathologists document the results, how do they document them?
