We use: 
1.      Report TAT
2.      Discrepant pathology reports
        a.      Internal vs External report correlation
        b.      Frozen section vs Final diagnosis correlation
        c.      Amended reports
I liked the idea of piece count discrepancy or even poorly processed blocks.  I 
never recommend using "recuts" as a QM because that is more often a product of 
the pathologists' preference or desire to see more tissue and does not reflect 
the quality of the sections (unless it is an incomplete facing issue).  This 
can quickly become punitive for your department because this information is not 
presented to people who understand pathology.
My 2 cents. Terri
