I've worked at large institutions where even if the samples are not grossed
together, the slides may end up adjacent to each other on a slide tray for
the pathologist. Many hospitals now place a marker in the space between all
cases, not just those that are the same type of tissue (it says "end of case
and is fluorescent shade of paper.

No CAP regulation about this, it however is a good practice unless you only
process one type of specimen.  Then you should implement a second
identifier, such as putting patient initials on the cassettes as well....All
of this really helps when you encounter a problem.  Thank you.

Subject: [Histonet] Logging in same type specimens consecutively

Does anyone know of a regulation by CAP that states that same type specimens
should not be logged in consecutively?  Thanks
