[Histonet] CLIA regulations for person's other than pathologists doing gross descriptions

From:"Vickroy, Jim"

I know that CLIA has certain regulations but can't put my finger on it right

Does anyone know the requirements for people to do gross descriptions of
small surgicals handy?

Questions have come up, such as:
1.  Do they need a BS degree?
2.  Do they have to have a histology certification?

CAP requires us to:

1.  List the types of specimens that the non-pathologist is able to do.
2.  State whether the nature of the pathologist supervision is direct or
3.  Have a system to evaluate gross descriptions  of non-pathologists.

thanks for your help.
