RN doumenting wound debridement

I work in an outpatient wound clinic where it is common for the RN Case Manager to document the wound debridement as a scribe. The RN is in the room during the debridement and the physician signs after the RN.  Just wondering if this is within the RN scope of practice. I may be overthinking this but just not crazy about this practice.
