Just a few brief reminders from this month's surgical pathology meeting:
Please be conscious of your chucks and other materials before tossing them into the trash, and make sure that you are not throwing out any tools, equipment, or tissue with your waste!
We will be having a number of radioactive (Yttrium-90) liver specimens coming in. Please be aware of this, and consult with Charlene regarding the specifics of how these specimens are to be handled.
Junior residents, please remember to consult your seniors on any challenging or interesting cases!
Finally, as an aside, please remember that we need to get all of our autopsies signed out within 60 calendar days! Histology lab turnaround time has dramatically improved lately, so it's on the residents to make sure that we are diligently work these cases up and get them to attendings well ahead of this deadline! There's nothing to gain from delaying your write-ups of the case, and it puts us at a high risk of missing our signout deadlines.
