RE: [Histonet] hardware and foreign bodies

From:"Horn, Hazel V"

All foreign bodies are sent to the lab for documentation.   We do not get
the hardware from fractures, etc.   We do return FB's to the patients if we
are requested to do so.

Subject: [Histonet] hardware and foreign bodies

Our surgical doctors want to be able to give their patients their hardware
and FB without it being grossed in the Histology Lab. I guess they say it
would save the patient money by not having a pathology fee. I was wondering
how other hospital handle their hardware and FB. Thanks in advance Mari
