[Histonet] Giving Specimens to Patients

From:"Smith Wanda"

Happy Friday Histonet,
We have aways given gallstones and foreign bodies to patients if they request them, however, I have a patient that wants his rib back that was removed in surgery.    It just looks like a rib fracture, no atypia.  Our Pathologist don't recommend this, but it is a call from the hospital legal department and I can't get in touch with them today.  What is the practice everyone uses for giving/not giving patient's their specimens in formalin?
