Hi! I was wondering what others do when they receive a request for a
specimen to be returned. I realize that there are many levels to this
question. (e.g. are we talking about a gallstone - which we clean, disinfect
and document return; or a placenta - which we release to a funeral home
selected by the patient). I would appreciate input concerning how any
requests you have received were handled, as well as where I may go to find
any guidelines on this issue. Thanks for all your help!
