[Histonet] Facility Name on Slides

I don't think there is a requirement, ie regulation. However, unless you can positively ID a slide as yours, or as your patient, without the facility name, slides could be confused with other institutions. So it is a good practice in any case. 

This is something you can make as internal policy, one way or the other, with the consideration of how you identify your institutions slides if there is no institution name on the slide or slide label.

Thanks for the reply.  :)

I still have someone insisting that we *must* have the facility name on the slide labels.  So, I am hoping I can get some others to chime in here, so I can show a general consensus on this issue.  Either that or have links to requirement lists for this item.

To my knowledge there is no regulation rather than having 2 identifiers,,
