Are You Meeting the Legal Requirements of a PA or NP Supervising Physician?

Legal Requirements Of A PA Supervising Physician

If you use PA’s or NP’s in your medical practice, you’re legally responsible for supervising them in a way that satisfies your state’s laws. Depending on which state you practice in, your role as a PA’s or NP’s supervising physician could require anything from documenting the work performed by your PA’s or NP’s, to signing off on a specific percentage of each PA’s charts, to making sure you aren’t supervising more than a certain number of PA’s or NP’s.

Do you know what your state’s laws require from you as a supervising physician for PA’s or NP’s?

If not, you could be placing your practice in jeopardy. The truth is that medical boards nationwide are ensuring that PA or NP supervising physicians are indeed performing and documenting their supervisory duties. This inquiry has led to increased documentation and practice scrutiny more than ever before. As representatives of their respective states, Medical Boards have a primary responsibility to protect the public and must ensure their licensees are meeting their responsibilities to provide a safe, quality patient care experiences. Supervising physicians who are breaking the laws (even unknowingly) could face penalties as severe as having their license suspended.
