    Question Late Entry

    AAPC: Back to School
    Resident and attending physician saw ER patient on 08/23/08. Resident finished/filed note on 08/23/08. The attending didn't add her PATH note until 09/24/08. I couldn't find any regulations on this. Can anyone tell me if we could get in trouble for the late co-signature/late note entry? Please provide resources if possible.

    Late entries I believe are considered to be late after 24 hours ....... I have documentation on this, but I have to find it.
