We have 3 new NP's and I've never coded for NP's.

1) When a NP assists my neurosurgeon on a procedure, what is required?

2) Does the NP need to dictate their own note for the procedure?

3) Does the surgeon have to dictate who assisted them and what part of the procedure did they assist?

4) We also have residents. Does the doctor need to dictate that there was no resident available?

Please need your help!
Thank you,
Tina
