Our lab has the policy of not accessioning back to back specimens of the same source.  This helps us to ensure if there is a mix up the pathologist can tell when reading the case.  For example if the specimen source is a skin and they have an endocervical they would know.
We are soon to be getting a higher volume of prostates and will have to accession them together.
What kind of procedural safeguards do you have in place when working with a high volume of identical sources?
