With the arrival of technology I have seen a big uptick in resident & APP photodocumentation of lacerations in EMR ED notes.
1) Are others seeing/doing this?
2)If so, "should"--or rather does it make sense that--we also photodocument the repaired appearance?
Not sure it matters but Ortho always does post-reduction XR of course, which is the only practice I can correlate this to.
Just curious others are doing and advising.
Thanks so much.
