	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!
