I was wondering if I
could get some feedback from anyone as to what your hospital policies are
concerning appropriate protective attire when assisting with autopsy procedures.
Our hospital currently does not feel the pathology department should be
issued hospital scrubs but should instead wear impermeable gowns or lab coats
over the employee's clothing. I disagree. I feel that with the potential
for exposure to various infectious diseases, we should not have to wear anything
that we would have to take home and launder. I am curious as to what other
institutions are doing. Thank you.
