Please help me to clarify the new regulation of JCAHO regarding the two identifiers, because I have been requested to use  2 identifiers on the slides. As I understand this subject, it will apply to the specimen collection container when it is submitted for processing, because the identification must be done in the presence of the patient. Slides identification is way pass this point! I appreciate any help. Thank you very much.
