Howdy all...
Its good to see other labs with the issues of specimen going back to the patient.  I have twice in the past 4 years had to return a placenta to a patient due to religious ideals.  My legal folks seem to feel that the religious reasons out weigh the legal and bio-hazards.  No matter what the state law.  The vinegar idea is a good one but a whole placenta????? ewwwww.  And how are some of you handling <20 week fetus??? Another specimen that people ask for.  I would think Funeral homes would handle this but not in all cases.  Any ideas?????
Thank you and happy Thanskgiving
