I am a Cytotechnologist working in Manitoba, Canada. Our provincial regulations are very clear on improperly labeled pap slides. The slide must be labeled with the patient personal health number. If the number does not match or there is no number on the slide, the slide must be destroyed by the lab and the clinician be notified that the slide was mislabeled and destroyed.
