Question:
Do I have to sign each of my NP’s notes that are reported incident to?

Answer:
The guidelines for reviewing and signing NPP documentation are set by each state in its scope of practice regulations. Each practice must research those requirements individually. But as an employer, you are responsible for the care provided by the NP, and reviewing and signing off on the notes may be an efficient method for keeping tabs on patient treatment.
