Re: [Histonet] LEG TRANSPORT
I'm sure that something more specific to this application has come out
by now, but way back when... all limbs were transported to the lab
wrapped (completely) in sterile surgical towels place on a stainless
steel surgical tray. After examination, any "disposable" parts were
then put in the red biohazard bags and disposed of in the proper
manner. The surgical towels were also placed in a separate red bag and
sent back to Central Service for sterilization and laundering. Then
repackaged & autoclaved for re-use.

>I have just been told that I cannot use the red bags to transport a leg from Surgery to the lab and than to disposal. It is illegal to reach inside the bag to remove anything once it has been put in it. I would like to know how everyone else is handling this problem. Is there a transport vehicle that is just for legs? If so where do i get it?
