Wow!!!  It is pretty obvious this person has never worked as a HT.  There are somethings you can cut corners but somethings you cannot.  Do they want unreadable slides.    I would without hesitation say to this manager the reason why this is not a good idea and would he want substandard slides if it was his tissue or someone he loves.     Augh!!!! Stuff like this just makes me angry.

Subject: [Histonet] Blade Rationing

I work in a hospital, there are three of us on this particular shift and we
cut approx. 200 blocks, give or take a few.  Our histo lab manager is
telling us we should only be using one pack of blades (50 per pack) a
month.  I'm wondering what other techs think of this especially lab
managers and supervisors.
