Re: [Histonet] Helicobacter

We keep track of our positive cases and only cut one ribbon for use as a
positive control.  This way we don't use up the block.

The reason why the pathologists are usually reluctant to use (+) cases,
is because if they are used as a (+) controls they will be probably used
up totally within a short period of time and IF there is some sort of
legal action against them or the hospital in one of those cases there
will be no a block to return to and make additional sections for
litigation purposes, and it is an understandable position.

Thanks everyone!  I also thought that we should be using positive
controls but our pathologist wasn't to keen on the idea for some
But now with all of your responses maybe we will be.

Thanks again!
