For all stains, we report the control verification on the patient report when reporting the stain results, and we run negative tissue controls for our organism stains, AFB and GMS

Subject: [Histonet] revised Cap regulation ANP .21395  ??
Hello Histonetters,
What is the take home message of this revision? How are other labs complying with respect to Special staining?  Do you keep records of individual case control verification or just individual block verification? Does anyone run NEG controls for Special staining? Is this regulation requiring Neg Controls for special stains? Any thoughts are appreciated.
