How many Cytology labs “seed” known cases into the daily workload? This is done, supposedly, for QA/QC. Do labs need to document this practice, do they need a written procedure/protocol in their labs manuals? Such “cases” are taken out of sequence and stickers replaced, etc. Do you think this practice is used to “plant” mistakes (misses) into the workload to fire techs? Does CLIA address this practice.
