We are a non-teaching facility and our surgeons utilize assistants (physicians, PA, NP) when performing various procedures. Can you clarify whether a general "canned text" statement is sufficient regarding documentation requirements (i.e. The assistant was present during the entire procedure and assisted me with major components during this time)? Or do the surgeons need to customize each note to precisely document what the assists did?
