I sponsored a resident in the past year but I'm not currently their sponsor. Do they need me to complete the final sponsor report or is it just their current sponsor that completes that form?
I work for NSH; what is the process for releasing the required chart notes to the committee?
- Requesting Physiotherapy Resident's information:
- NSCP License number
- Patient's information:
- First and Last name
- Health Card Number or Date of Birth (or both is great)
- Location or Hospital Site where the visit happened
- Date(s) of assessment, or date range.
- Include details of records required (initial assessment to discharge and all relevant physiotherapy progress notes/supporting documents).
The estimated turnaround time for the request is approximately 3 weeks depending on workload.
