We keep the slides when we provide the interpretation and diagnosis.  Occasionally, they are returned at the request of the referring institution because the patient is being presented at a conference or is going else where for a second opinion or treatment.

Curious to see how others are handling this...........

We recently received a consult from another facility and ended up
preparing a lot of IHC stains on the referred blocks. One of our
pathologists believes the IHC slides should be returned to the original
requesting lab. Another couple of pathologists and I feel that the
slides should be kept here, as we have some sort of legal
responsibility, as the facility that prepared the slides from which our
consult report was generated.
