About separating specimens and formalin...
Our hospital is about to stop using an incinerator to burn all its waste, and
instead create different waste streams. Most biohardous waste will be
sterilized, some of that will be shredded, then eveything sent to a landfill.
Surgical pathology specimens however, will be incinerated by an outside
contractor. Trouble is, the contractor does not want the formalin, just the
specimens! Has anyone else run into this? Are there histotechs around the
country (or the world) emptying formalin out all those little containers, and
some large ones, that we all receive surgical pathology specimens in? How do
others separate the specimens and the formalin?
