RE: Specimens leaving the hospital

From:"Weems, Joyce"

It has happened here occasionally - by a dermatologist. It is NOT the
correct procedure. It needs to be documented in Pathology, even if it is
sent to another lab.

Has anyone run across a situation where patient specimens (inpatient or
outpatient surgery) have been taken from the hospital where the surgical
procedure was performed and sent to an outpatient laboratory for
diagnosis (completely bypassing the hospital laboratory)?
