Subject: [Histonet] CAP question
On the most recent CAP checklist there is a requirement for 2 patient identifiers. For those labs who are CAP and receive all or a large portion of their cases from outside facilities (=not from your facility), what are you using as the identifiers on your specimen containers? Name and birthdate? SS#? Med record? Something else?
Thank you in advance!
