Good Morning,
I know we have been over this before, how does your lab measure productivity?  Are you going by block and slide or by CPT code?  I have been told by the "Suits" that we can only measure productivity by per specimen or CPT code with no weight and value.  As you know when you get a big case you can have a bunch of blocks on it therefore a bunch of slides.   I do everything from GI specimens to big breast cases.  They will tell me that our productivity is down and we need to cut hours.   I just do not know exactly how to drill it in to them that things are not always as they appear on paper.  I am talking in circles until I am blue in the face...AUGH!!!!!!
