Dear Histonet,

Is there an industrial standard (CAP Guideline) for turnaround time for
surgical reporting or is  TAT based on each institutions individual
policy? We report out 90% or better of all small cases the next working
day and 90% of large cases within three working days. Autopsies
preliminary are reported in three working days with a final report
within six weeks.

Curious in Canada,

Windsor Regional Hospital,
Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
