RE: [Histonet] GROSSING

From:"Liz Chlipala"

This was along time ago when I was in clinical, but we also would put
cassette lids on the specimens and place them in the fixative, decal, etc.
for a few of the pathologists, not all of them, when they were grossing.  It
was not a big issue for us at the time since we had the gross room staffed
with at least one person (a lab aide or a tech) most of the day to enter the
specimens, print cassettes, handle frozen etc.

Does anyone out there assist the pathologist during gross? We are in a bit
of a fix over here. We did with our pathologist for years. She has retired.
2 guys took her place and one needs us to put the lids on the
cassettes...because it makes gross go much faster for him. it is making the
days when he does gross very long for us. The other pathologist doesn't need
any one to stay with him. We are about a 7000 case /year 85-120 cassettes/
day lab. my lab manager has asked me to ask other labs what they do.
