Dumpster diving should be rare among histotechs, but I suspect we have
all done it in one form or another at some point in our careers. Vinnie,
yours is the most extreme senerio I recall.  Bill

 in order to protect the innocent I want to mention that the "lost"
kidney biopsy that was successfully found in a mountain of red bag waste
occurred at another facility and not where I am currently employed.
This is one of those experiences you never forget but fortunately had a
happy ending and has been the subject of workshops I've given for NSH.
