Technically, it is a cap requirement that it be documented as to why the TAT
was greater than 20 minutes.  Nothing states that the TAT can't exceed 20

That is the CAP requirement.

Hello all,

I was wondering what folks are using as a benchmark for frozen section TAT.
Do you even have one?  We have always listed a 15 minute TAT for but we are
not always meeting it these days.  The 15 minutes is for single frozens.
