Patient names on slide labels


We recently aquired the Tamtron Path system.  We decided to put patient names on the slide labels, thinking that would give our pathologists one more way to check that are reading the right slide with the right report, (thinking of the Minnesota mix up). 
The questions are what labs are doing this and what is the general consensus on this, with all the HIPPA guidelines that are in place?
