RE: [Histonet] Protect fingers during Microtomy

From:"Mike Pence"



I have cut the tips off both my index fingers. They are now flat on the
medial sides. Have sliced various fingers from time to time hitting the
"edge" of the blade. Goes with the job. Most of the techs that work for
me have had one or two cuts over the years.

We keep a "tip" jar.  So far we have had 2 donations!  It is a good
deterrent if nothing else!

Yes, nicked the corner of a steel blade reaching for slide. This was 
back in 78 or 79. It was a Saturday, working by myself and I had to wait

for 3 hours in the ER. No preferential treatment for employees in a 
county hospital.
