We accept single specimens without a site if the patient's full name and
dob match the protocol exactly.  Most physicians label the site, but we
won't send a single sight case back for that reason.  We do request and
prefer the site as well.

Happy Friday!
I'm curious about what the majority of labs accept for specimen
labeling, in addition to the usual, ie: name and  medical record
number/PHN. What is your policy concerning specimen type/source do you
require this to be on all specimen containers as well as paper
Is this a requirement for multiple specimens on the same patient only?
or do you require it for single specimen as well?
Thank you!
