You can put anything you want on the cassette - as long as you know how to
find it and match it to the case if you need to.

Please help!

Does anyone have the data on what cap requires for retention of surgical
pathology patient reports.  10---20 years?

I have a doctor with large handwriting and he would like to drop the "S" we
put on the cassette so he has enough room for the year and patient number.
Does anyone know if it is a requirement to have an "S" in front of a
patients surgical number.  

I thank you for your help in advance
