Does anyone out there in Ped EM land code for critical care for your "rule out sepsis" patients.
If we have direct pt. care of 30 minutes, not including a spinal tap, are talking to PMD's, reviewing office and / or birth records, reviewing and documenting labs, updating parents, documenting repeat exams, going through admit process....
Just curious what our thoughts are, and any other tips/tricks/suggestions on CC coding.
