We do this thing at work, where every stain we do on however many patient slides, we add in a positive control slide (something that will stain positive for whatever it is that you're looking for on the patient tissue, so you can be sure that the stain worked right and you didn't get a negative result on the patient tissue by accident instead of it being actually negative). Drs are supposed to check these slides every day and sign off on them. They haven't been doing this.

We were inspected last month and the inspector made a HUGE STINK about it. We had to do this whole "action plan" thing showing how we were gonna fix the problem, etc. etc.

So now every day I give one of the doctors a single sheet of paper, with the names of each stain I did on one side, and a spot for them to check off that it was ok, and a spot to write in if something was wrong, and a little spot for them to put their fucking initials on it. At the absolute most, we're talking about less than five minutes a day to fill this thing out.

And the last two days I get one doctor neglecting to put his initials on, and the other neglecting to put a little check mark in the "worked ok" column. Jesus God, HOW HARD IS THIS. HOW HARD. HOW CAN SOMEONE WHO WENT TO EIGHT YEARS OF MEDICAL SCHOOL BE SO STUPID AND LAZY?!

Man, when the inspector comes next year and there's a whole goddamn year of improperly filled out forms I just don't even know what I'm gonna do. I'm not responsible for my actions though, I'm telling everyone this right now.
