Grossing bone marrow core biopsies will now be under the purview of the PAs and gross room technical staff. If any issues or questions arise, please notify the chief residents, Dr. Cipriani, Charlene, or Rachel.
Residents, in order to help facilitate your microscopic review of frozen section slides, please incorporate gross room technical staff and/or PAs into the frozen section workflow more frequently. As you know, techs can cut tissue already embedded in blocks, and PAs can perform the entire process. Keep this in mind especially when multiple parts from a single case or multiple cases with frozen sections are requested simultaneously. Residents should prioritize microscopic examination of the frozen section with the attending pathologist.
