We are hand writing the LIS generated number on the front of each cassette and the patient's last name on the side.  We have been doing this since the JCAHO rule came out.

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
