We are currently going to be putting 2D barcodes on our cassettes to satisfy this requirment,  the problem comes when your PIS is down and you are hand writing cassettes.  But if the last name is the only thing that you put on this block how is it going to give an Identification.  You will need the entire name on there to really have any type of use to find out information.

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.

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.
