H & P by both surgeons

Do both surgeons have to do an H&P if they do a surgery as co-surgeons?

Hi,

 

Thanks for your question.

 

As per CMS guidelines, More than one qualified practitioner can participate in performing, documenting, and authenticating an H&P for a single patient. When performance, documentation, and authentication are split among qualified practitioners, the practitioner who authenticates the H&P will be held responsible for its contents.

Hope this helps. 

 

Please feel free to ask for any further query

 

Thanks
