Medical Record - Authentication Time Frame

Do the standards specify the time frame for authentication of documentation?    

Any examples are for illustrative purposes only.

The Joint Commission standards do not specify the time frame for authentication of documentation. The organization is free to determine the time frame for completion of authentication. The timeframe must comply with any applicable laws or regulations. If the organization is silent on the issue for specific types of documentation, the time frame defaults to the time frame that the organization adheres to for completion of the medical record.
