lolYour answer looks good. However somewhere along the line one needs to document in writing that all of the procedures and patient identifiers are in place. This would insure that any and all deviations from the in-house procedures are correct and that cytotech's (and Pathologists) can be assured by these written controls and procedures that patient identifiers are indeed correct. Some kind of written controls are necessary. To just say I checked and we are good and so are you, is not enough! Also when this done (specimens sent to another hospital for processing and slides returned for screening) slide numbers are out of sequence making screening somewhat difficult. This adds to the problem of patient identifiers. This is especially important when JCAHO keeps bringing up the importance of TWO patient identifiers for patient safety.
