All places I've worked at use similar as well. Also you need a second patient identifier as blocks and slides are considered an aliquot from the original specimen. Such as last name, date of birth etc
And it doesn't have to be S, it can be any prefix meaningful to your specific lab. As you may have multiple offices sending you specimens and might want to designate something specific to seperate them, such as NS- # for a north office and SS for a south as a example.
