Subject: RE: [Histonet] embedding like specimens sequentially
This is an intriguing problem. I'm unsure why anyone would court
disaster if it could be avoided. I checked the web page
http://www.pathologistsassistants.org/ PA's do work under the
direction of the pathologist so as Curtis pointed out, that would be one
way to handle it.
Also, the web site states under the code of regulation:
Section 3. Service.
A Pathologists' Assistant is qualified by academic and practical
training to provide the following services under the direction and
supervision of a pathologist:
A. Preparation, gross description and dissection of human tissue
surgical specimens including:
1. Assuring appropriate specimen accessioning.
Since this is a bit ambiguous, it could be put in your procedure manual
as an SOP and then all the fussin an feudin would be put to an end. I'm
puttin that "fussin and feudin" lingo in their for all our UK friends
that have been so privileged to hear our fearless leader (cough, cough)
speak this week. He's very brave when it comes to bombing and sending
the troops in, but Members of parliament are just too much for him!
