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

From:Tom McNemar

O.R. puts the routine specimens in formalin and we pick them up ourselves.
They have offered to bring them to us but this way we can get them when we
want them.  They bring anything else (frozens, lymphomas, etc.) to us fresh.
We are about 225 beds.

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
