Good Morning,

I would like to post a question on histonet:

My organization is made up of multiple hospitals and surgery centers. All specimens are couriered to the Pathology Department  which is located at only one of the facilities. The sites without a fully operational pathology lab provide frozen section support  and are equipped with grossing stations.  Currently any below and above knee leg amputations are held at the collecting hospital and a pathologist is deployed to gross the leg at that location. Only the blocks are transported to the pathology department. My question is where do other systems with  multiple hospitals and surgery centers, with an offsite pathology department, gross their amputations?  Is the entire limb being transported to the offsite Pathology Lab or do personnel gross at collecting location ? If the entire limb is being couriered, how is it packaged?
