I can't help you out on the date of dictation, but providers should always include their credentials with their signature. This is standard charting procedure. When I sign a patient chart as an RN, I always include this and was taught that not doing so is incorrect. Also, the signature, date and credentials must be legible.
Had a situation during an audit where CNA's were charting physical therapy notes when they were performing ROM activities for SNF residents. They were clearly "slopping" their signature and credential, and the provider was billing for PT.
