We switched from intercoms to phones some years back. The phone is put on speaker mode in the OR. I suppose problems can occur with the phone system too, but we haven't experienced this.
Regarding the CAP part of the question, I would call them. Ask if you can send a written diagnosis, which you are to receive back with the physician's/designee's signature. You can then document the intercom problems, and how you worked around it.

Hello All,

We are having a issue with our intercom system in the OR so the pathologist are having issues communicating frozen section diagnosis with the surgeon.
Does anyone in Histoland use a written form to send frozen section diagnosis? Per CAP if it is verbal the pathologist must speak directly with the surgeon.  Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
