Why do we keep asking you who you are?

Patient identification and the matching of a patient to an intended treatment is performed routinely in all care settings. Incorrect identification can result in wrong person, wrong site procedures, medication errors, transfusion errors and diagnostic testing errors.

For your safety, we must ask you:

  • Your full name
  • Your date of birth
  • Your address, or other form of identification
  • What are you here for
