Frozen turnaround time

I am interested in how different labs track the frozen turnaround time. 
Currently we have a log sheet in the frozen area, the OR nurse that brings 
the specimen in is the one that logs the specimen, pt info and arrival time. 
The pathologist then fills in the diagnosis, completed time and initials. CAP 
says that 90% of frozens should have a turnaround of 20 min or less. How are 
other labs tracking this? Are other labs tracking every frozen or just 

Thank you for your input,
