Yes, you do need a "standard procedure" manual for the management of all
of your specimens.  Life has gotten more complicated with the reporting
standards now in place for reporting cancer which includes the gross
examination.  A good start for the non-neoplastic cases would be the
appendix of a good surgical pathology text like Rosai (i haven't seen
the latest editions, but i think it is still there).  Other standard
references also have this information.  And then, go to the CAP website
and download the standard protocols and convert them to how your
pathologists want them.  All of this may be online, but you also need a
copy in the gross room.  It's a pretty sizable job if you don't have any
of it done already.
