RE: [Histonet] Gloves....again

From:"Weems, Joyce"

Point of discussion is that it's very difficult to learn to do these very hands on tasks with gloves, when you have been doing without for so long. I thought I'd never get used to doing frozens! There's nothing like a good warm thumb to make thyroid cut. Of course, I'm older than dirt and come from the days when we handled fresh and fixed tissue without gloves! We've come a long way - perhaps we should start new techs off in gloves and then they'd never know the difference. With prions running amuck, it would be a good idea. j Joyce WeemsPathology ManagerSaint Joseph's Hospital 5665 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd NEAtlanta, GA 30342404-851-7376 - Phone404-851-7831 - Fax-----Original Message-----From:[]On Behalf OfMargaryan, NairaSent: Friday, March 18, 2005 10:25 AMTo: Charles.Embrey; Angela Bitting; histonet@lists.utsouthwestern.eduSubject: RE: [Histonet] Gloves....againNot here, but I don't understand a point of discussion. The GLOVES isyour protection and, some times, it doesn't matter is it fixed tissue ornot. Never know how good tissue is fixed.
