Dear Sara:
The different hospital's I have worked for have required either a lab jacket 
or an apron,
during embedding, staining, and microtome, mostly to protect your personal 
clothing from pariffin , or stains that can spill on your clothing. I have 
never been informed that this was a requirement from CAP. We were never able 
to wear jeans in the hospital mostly because of hospital policy. One of the 
hospital's I just left is now requiring all Lab employee's to wear a uniform. 
 I do feel she should have never given you a deficiency if your hospital 
allows your employee's t wear nice jeans so be it. The hospitals I have 
worked at said no due to hospital image.
I hope this helps.
