Using a l-inch long, 1/2-inch wide strip of black tape, tape over the number that corresponds to the last digit of the SSN in each of the two number scales. The tape must completely blacken out the number and extend around the edge of the jacket to the back.
For patients who do not have an SSN (e.g., foreign personnel and their family members), create a "substitute" SSN by coding the first three digits with 800 and the last six digits as the month, day, and year of the patient's birth (i.e., MM-DD-YY).
