RE: [Histonet] Specimen submission from OR (Formalin/Fresh/Saline ?)

From:"Horn, Hazel V"

Hi Sue,
Our formalin fixed specimens are brought to us by an OR runner.   The fresh
specimens are sent by a tube system.     Our hospital is around 235 beds.

Subject: [Histonet] Specimen submission from OR (Formalin/Fresh/Saline?)

I was just wondering how other Histology Labs receive their specimens from
the Operating Room (OR). Also, how do the specimens come to the Lab? (Do
Histology personnel pick up the specimens? Or do OR personnel or a separate
transport service bring them?) If you could include how many beds your
facility has as well, I'd appreciate it. Thanks, Sue O'Brien, Histology
