Is anyone able to help me out with the current standards for Ohio's cytology slides read workload limits?  I am working on CAP inspection updates and we do not have a cytotech at our hospital, so I am in charge of cytology and histology manuals.   I need to know if Ohio's standards are more stringent than the CLIA standards.  Current CLIA standards state that an individual evaluating cytology preparations by manual microscopic technique must examine no more than 100 slides (gyn and non-gyn or both) in 24 hours.  Is this the same standard for Ohio?  I have emailed the Ohio cytology society 3 times and I have emailed a lady that is supposed to be in the Ohio cytology society group and have not received any response.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance!!!
