[Histonet] GROSSING

In the hospital, there is a grossing tech who helps the pathologists like 
make cassettes, logs specimens in, makes bags for extra tissues and puts the 
cassettes in formalin. I love working with him because I get so spoiled.
    In the private lab, we make our own cassettes, bags, grossing logs and 
put our own cassettes in formalin. Some of the doctors do, ok, one doctor 
does, the other 3 need their hands held.
    Hey, they want to pay me a manager's salary to be a grossing assistant, 
I can live with that.
