Hi histo land!

Referencing CAP requirement ANP.22983, how do you all document cold ischemic time?  Do you have a "macro" that the pathologists input or a disclaimer?  We were recently inspected and we include a "disclaimer" in the reports that the time is less than one hour, but the inspector said that it was not "Accurately documented in the report"...I want to fix this this, of course but wondered if you all had any guidance such that I don't try and recreate the wheel.  Thank you for your time!
