Hello everyone
I need to find the CMS requirement for acceptable provider signature on chart progress notes. Specifically, if the provider has written a 3 page progress note, does his/her signature need to be on every page of the progess note? I know that the patient name, dob and dos must be indicated, but we have a difference of opinion in our office regarding this requirement. Anyone's help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

My understanding is as long as you can tell the pages belong together, the signature only needs to be on one page.
