A word of caution.  Make sure you have a means of documenting what
specimens are in the OR specimen holding area, who placed them there,
who picked them up and at what time.  Otherwise, the lab could be held
responsible if a specimen "disappears". Yes, I have seen it happen.....

Howdy All
  We take a  bucket and pick our specimens up.  In our policy it is the
O.R. nurses that are supposed to get them to us.  But if we did that we
would get everything at 3 P.M. in the afternoon, so we get them, just
easier than waiting.
