    Correct Answer
    C. Match their medical record number on their picture to the medical record number on the label
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to match their medical record number on their picture to the medical record number on the label. This ensures that the correct patient is being treated or given medication by verifying their unique medical record number. Matching their name on their picture or their room number may not be reliable as there could be multiple patients with the same name or in the same room. Matching their age may also not be sufficient as there could be patients of the same age. Therefore, the medical record number is the most accurate and specific identifier for ensuring the right patient is being treated.
