Re: Age Specific Competencies

Hi Kathy,

We treat some specimens differently according to age.  Foreskins, tonsils
and adenoids are "grossed only" on children, and processed and stained for
adults.  We used the age cut-off on these types of specimens to reflect
age-related competencies.  CAP accepted this for Histo.
