After a physician has signed off an order for the administration of allergy injections, is he/she required to sign off on each allergy injection administered by his staff?
Allergy immunotherapy is not under the diagnostic guidelines but rather the incident to guidelines. The physician should provide direct supervision and the physician should indicate a review of the allergy injection schedule during follow-up. A guideline has not been published indicating that the physician must sign off on each individual injection.
