Hi everyone,
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!
