History & Physical Reminders

Monday, January 31, 2011 at 9:54:48 AM

Patient history and physicals are updated prior to procedures and surgeries. If no change has occurred, documentation must state that the patient was examined and previous information reviewed. For example, “Exam done - no changes since last H&P.” Any information regarding the update should not be documented on the form prior to examining the patient.
