Patient Mis-identification can occur: 1) - When a positive identifier (Sample ID or Cassette/Position) is manually edited to a positive identifier that is already in the To Do list. The workstation will accept the entry and no error message will be generated, creating 2 samples with the identical positive identifier.
2) - When manually entering a Patient ID, if a blank space is entered between the characters in the Patient ID field, the system will only accept the characters before the space.
