[Histonet] Regulations regarding placenta retention - when NOT sent to lab

From:"O'Brien, Sue"

I was wondering if there were any specific regulations regarding how long
Maternity must keep placenta's that do not meet our hospital's criteria to
be sent to the lab for Pathologist evaluation. I am aware of the CLIAA -88
and CAP regulations, but they apply to specimens submitted to the lab.
Thank-you for any insight, website, or information you are willing to share,
