Doctor's surgery report

We are trying to find out information about time restraints for a doctor to fill out a surgery report.  In other words, is there a protocol that predicts the length of time a doctor has to fill out a report about a surgery he or she did?

Does anyone know the answer or can you refer us to someone that we can ask about this?

Hi,
If you are referring to the operative report, this is usually done immediately after an operative or other high risk procedure to ensure proper management of the patient throughout the postoperative period. Usually, the organization's policy,also defines the timeframe for dictation and placement in the medical record. It  is best that  you discuss this also with your attending physician for any clarifications and considerations of factors that may be involved. Take care and regards.
