nurse delivery

If the nurse delivers the baby how do you charge for the visit if provider has no documentations for post op hospital day notes. The doctor only has post partum delivery orders.

RNs are technically not licensed to deliver a baby whereas a certified nurse midwife is, thats because she is an advance practice nurse with additional education and licensing.

In case the provider doest not have the post operative notes, only the delivery can be billed.

But for post operative payment, documentation is required.
