It is my understand that the two patient identifier applies to the completed slide not the block.
You can verify this by looking at the CAP Checklist for anatomical pathology

Subject: [Histonet] Block patient IDs

A question for all you CAP fundis: how many patient Identifiers are needed on each paraffin block

We currently just write the unique, LIS generated number on the block face, but have recently been advised that CAP and JCIA require not one, but TWO patient IDS on the block

Comments please
