with the intent of formulating the best practice for error reduction
(floaters, tissue compression and loss of diagnostic use). We are hoping

1. Are forceps cleaned and/or changed between individual cases or parts
of cases from the same patient while grossing?
2. Are forceps cleaned and/or changed between individual cases or parts
of cases from the same patient while embedding?
3. Does the use of paper towel constitute a clean work surface? (i.e.
one paper towel per case/part)
4. Do you use forceps with teeth to gross/embed pieces that do not
Thank you, in advance, for your input.
