If a pathologist end-user may make an observation here:

When I pick up a slide and look to match it with the paperwork in
front of me, it's a great help if the patient's name is on the slide,
since names are always easier to read than numbers. Having the
patient's name on the slide means I'm less likely to mix up two cases.
I can't do that with a bar code or a second essentially meaningless

This may however be a situation where good patient care must take a
back seat to good management practice and good regulator compliance.
