Whoever conducts the therapy must sign their own work, so yes, it is ok for a PTA to sign off on their own notes.
The physical therapist does not have to be present at all times with the PTA. The PT may decide to do a supervisory visit, but this is not required for each and every patient visit. The PT only needs to be present to conduct the initial evaluation and subsequent reassessments.
