Depends, is the practice out of the ACGME accredited hospital, or is the doctor rounding at several hospitals?

To be considered green book, you need do the entire rotation at that hospital.

In other words, if you don't have an ID from the hospital, aren't able to write in pt's charts, then chances are you aren't "rotating" in that hospital but more so under the physician.
