We save our trash until all of the slides are given out and  the cases are confirmed complete.  If there is a block missing we turn the lab up-side-down and see what shakes out.  We've found blocks left in surface decal, in the microtome chucks, in the trash (pushed off the counter by mistake), filed without sectioning, and even UNDER the microtome!  If you still can't find it, an incident report is order.
    This doesn't happen often but errors occur.   -Janet

I was just wondering how everyone handles a lost block situation.  Do you 
have policies or procedures?  Do you write an incident report?  What do you 
do?  Thanks for all your help!
