[Histonet] Help Please! Sentinel Lymph Nodes!

From:"Gladney, Diane C Ms MACH"


I am desperate need of help with protocols for handling Sentinel Lymph
Nodes. Our pathologist agreed to accept a Sentinel Lymph Node today from
Surgery. We have never done these types of biopsies here before. We do not
have any protocols, safety measures, etc. in place. This was dumped in my
lap very late yesterday and I am trying to jump through hoops to try and
handle this specimen properly. I am trying to get some guidance from
Radiology but I haven't gotten any help from them so far. Does anyone have a
protocol with proper storage and handling of these types of biopsies that
they would be willing to share with me? 

If anyone can help me, please either email me your protocols or Fax them to
me at:  803-751-7829.
I need this ASAP. I thank you all for any assistance.
