Hi Ginny,
	Here, none of the lab offices are considered as clean areas. They
all handle the specimen request forms, which have followed the specimen
through the various lab areas.

Dear Histonetters,
We have an ongoing issue with the pathology office about whether or not the
office where the girls transcribe should be considered a clean area.  Since
all of the computer requisitions are single pages, they are circulated from
the pocket of the biohazard bag the specimen arrives in, to the accessioning
table, to the grossing area, handled by the PA and passed on to the
transcriptionists who believe that they work in a "clean area".  What are
the protocols in other pathology offices?
