[Histonet] more specific information included-Are You Paid for Grossing and Autopsy Assistance?

From:Liz Poulette

 Hello All!    Just like the subject says: any techs who assist with grossing and  autopsy: are you getting paid for the extra work/responsibility? If you  are -could you tell me what you are getting paid?    thanks!  Liz


At the hospital I work at I gross everything but large complex cancer cases. I fill in for the PA when she is on vacation and/or when there are alot of specimens.
I assist the PA with autopsy cases.  I help remove organs, remove brains, clean up and keep the morgue stocked and in order.
I work at a smaller hospital so I don't so this on a regular basis. I am a graduate of a histology program here in NY/ascp certified and also have a BA in Anthropology.

I don't get paid for the extra work i do..it falls under "other duties assigned" .  I don't mind because I don't do any of the above on a regular basis-its good to have skills that can transfer to another job if need be though.

I am just curious what techs who do get paid-how much work they do and what the going rate is.

Thanks again!
