dead process seen as running

When monit monitors a process, it relies on the pid number of the process
(found in a pid file) to check if it's alive.
If the monitored process dies and another (non related) process reuses the pid before monit rechecks all process, monit wil think that the monitored process is still
running while is it not.
Is there a way to prevent this problem (problem which occurs in real life for me) ? Could the check relies also on the name of the process and not just its pid ? Is there a workaround ? what would be the best way to code this if necessary ?
