CAP defines processing as....
1) Processing is defined as a tissue examination limited to description,
inking and cutting of the specimen (if applicable), and submission of the
entire specimen to histology. Tissue processing can be performed according
to standardized protocols. Processing is generally limited to small
specimens (skin ellipses, small biopsies, curettings, etc.) and does not
require knowledge of anatomy.
So basically you need to have a "processing procedure" in place for the
different type of specimens that are being "processed". If you have a PA or
a Pathologist grossing everything then this would be N/A.
