I have used QA feedback/documentation/randomized block and slide audit. Would include occurence, root cause, technical variables, patient impact, correction, training, competency etc. I would think you develop scaling like FMEA maybe for subjective items. The pathologist feedback is always a good source.You can use manual paper or LIS to track, then trend in excel.

Subject: [Histonet] Quality Management Monitors

In looking through my 2012 plan for QM monitors, I would be interested to hear from any of you on how your department may monitor the microtomy bench or embedding bench for quality?  I am not talking productivity, but quality.  How can we monitor these benches to help staff improve the quality of their work?  I don't want this to be punitive, but a learning experience for all.

Thank you in advance for any ideas that you may be able to share!
