  • Poster Podcast (2016): P-17 Pregnancy in the Histology Laboratory- A Review of Safety Considerations
    Katelin Tellechea The purpose of this study is to review published articles, regulatory recommendations, and anecdotal evidence with the intention of providing a complete education for safety in the Histology Laboratory while pregnant. It shall encourage labs to provide their technicians with protocols or direct access to the information regarding the manner in which pregnancy alters their work environment. When a Histotechnologist intends on working throughout her pregnancy, what kinds of changes does she need to make in the lab? Are there different regulations and permissible exposure limits for the duration of her pregnancy? Do personal protective equipment requirements change? Do supervisors and physicians have ready access to regulations and recommendations to ensure they are providing the safest environment for their pregnant workers? This study aims to provide a comprehensive evaluation of these concerns to ensure proper modifications are implemented regarding the safety of a pregnant worker in the Histology Laboratory.
