This Committee reviews histo-pathological results done on tissues recovered from operations and determines if operations performed were appropriate and discrepancies in pre-operative and post-operative diagnosis.
The Tissue Committee evaluates the report on every piece of tissue surgically removed. When there is consistency among the pre-operative diagnosis, operative diagnosis and pathological diagnosis, the results are tabulated for the purpose of quarterly and annual reports. In those instances of diagnostic and pathological inconsistency, the case is studied in detail. Further evaluation would include a review of the patient’s chart and the responsible surgeon has to justify his or her course of action. The results and recommendation are tabulated. Cases presenting unresolved inconsistencies or potential deficiencies in desired standards of care are referred to Executive Committee for further evaluation.
