Preamble: many of these issues are small, yet each issue is just that… an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then the larger issues often take care of themselves and you can focus on the larger issues… a larger, more profitable practice and more family time.

“Signature-Signature Stamps”

“Thank you… my 2 favorite words… I’m sorry comes next” Mark Studin 2019

In my “much too long” personal experience, reviewing of records, reading criminal complaints, having been investigated by SIU (at a cost of $15,000 to me for lawyers over NOTHING) the much to common practice of having your staff sign your name on disability, work notes, SOAP note, record certification or any other document has a strong undercurrent of FRAUD, gross misconduct (loss of license) and lots of other REALLY BAD STUFF.

If you have a signature stamp… RIGHT NOW… BURN IT… Your are NEVER to have one in your practice.

You personally sign everything because your money, license and in extreme cases, your freedom depends upon it.

This is being brought up based on a story with a very unhappy ending with a doctor… You always have choices!
