Our OR and Breast Health staff have done pretty well getting on board with this. We rarely have one that hasn't been documented.
We have a place on the requisition (located just under the date field so they will see it) where time out of body (for the cold ischemic time), and time into formalin is documented. Then we document the rest on the requisition and the pathologist takes it from there.

Subject: [Histonet] CAP guideline for fixation time
Per CAP guideline, in our reports of predictive markers(ER/PR/Her2), Pathologists need to check that the total fixation time of specimens is within the CAP guideline. Is this information readily available to the pathologists at the time of writing the report? How are others documenting this?
Have a great weekend.
