RE: [Histonet] Are Gloves a CAP regulation?


I was a military histo tech and I never wore gloves when cutting or
embedding.  I have never seen anything in any of my CAP inspections that
would require it.  Have your co-worker tell you which CAP inspection
checklist item addresses this.

  Since I work at a military facility, I have notice that all the
histo techs wear gloves to embed and cut. I went to school and we never
this. When CAP came last year, my co-worker insisted that this was a CAP
regulation. Does anybody know if this is a CAP regulation, because this
news to me and I was never taught in school to wear gloves to embed or
cut. Thank you.
