National Safety Goals state that you have to label the container in front 
of the patient.

RE: [Histonet] Prostate Bx's

Why would you want to prelabel the containers prior to seeing the patient?
Outside of the kit being labeled LLB LLM LLA, etc., the individual 
containers should not be label until you actually add the sample to avoid

Good Morning Everyone,

I was wondering for those of you working in POL labs or even hospitals, if 
you are pre-lableing specimen bottles before the patient comes in?  Ie 12 
part prostate boxes have the patient's name and the bx site pre-made days 
or weeks before the patient comes in.  If not do you know of any 
documentation that states this should not be done.  I have been looking 
for something that says the bottles should not be pre-labeled before the 
patient is seen, but have unfortunatley have not been able to find any. 

thanks in advanced
