I have always been trained that the only person who can document the Chief Complaint is the provider. A nurse cannot document a chief complaint. I've researched here and most of the threads are older. Is there anywhere in CMS or OIG or anywhere that specifically says the provider must document CC? The CMS statement of what a nurse can document isn't being accepted by staff as statement that a provider has to document. Anything new regarding this yet?
