Medical Record Delinquencies

Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at 9:30:39 AM

The Medical Staff Quality and Medical Executive Committees approved a recommendation for when medical record delinquencies will be placed in the physicianís QA file. If a practitioner has charts more than 6 months old or 50 charts more than 60 days old, a warning letter will be sent and a one week grace period allowed. If the charts still arenít completed, the delinquency will become part of the QA file. Advanced practice providers are responsible for their own medical record delinquencies. Physicians will still be held to the 30 day period for delinquent charts with potential fines and suspension; however, the action wonít be placed in the QA file until the six month period has elapsed.
