We are a teaching hospital and have resident's seeing patients, documenting the records and then the teaching physician see's the patient and documents his portion. Sometimes, the supervising physician signs the documentation before the resident does and then the resident can't sign the note. My question is this. Are resident's required to sign the documentation and if so, can you point me to the Medicare guidelines that says this. I've been looking and can't find anything that states this. I can only find that the teaching physician must date and sign the note.

Thanks
