Word of caution about patient's name in cassettes or slides:
  check you "confidentiality policies" before doing that because the patient's name will be available to any with access to either the cassette or the slide.
  We never allowed that type of "second" identification.

Our facility puts the patients last name on the cassettes as the second identifier.

I would like some input on handwritten identifiers on blocks/cassettes. Our 
facility currently puts the surgical number only on our blocks and is 
considering the idea of a second identifier.
