Hi Melissa
I'm also in NY, and do something similar - we have an SOP with basic workflow and guidelines, then have attachments with specific protocols and instructions

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [Histonet] Grossing SOP

Good Afternoon,
Hope this finds everyone healthy and well.  I am helping my laboratory with a project centered around an SOP for grossing specimens (for both PAs and techs).  We are in New York state.  I am pushing this working group to write an SOP in general terms and to include any compliance items...  leave the 'how to' grossing instructions for every specimen type to an appendix or linked document to not bog the SOP down with too much detail.  I have looked through Joint Commission and NYSDOH and find very little compliance items related to this 'grossing' function.  How do ya'll handle this in your manuals?  Thank you kindly and stay well.
