[Histonet] California Grossing Requirements

From:Cindy DuBois

The person in our lab who grosses most of the surgical specimens is not a certified pathology assistant (or an HT).  At our last CLIA inspection the inspector asked us for the "PA's" certification documentation.  I deferred the question to the "PA" themselves.  She managed to change the subject quite quickly and the topic was not brought up again.  Now our grossing person is thinking that she is not qualified and should not be grossing according to government regulations.  I have not been able to find anything anywhere (google search) stating who can gross or not gross tissue specimens. 
Can anyone help me with this question?
