H&P Requirements

Tuesday, June 21, 2011 at 2:08:44 PM

All patients need a history and physical on their chart within 24 hours of admission and prior to surgery. For those patients who have had a dictated or handwritten history and physical report completed within the past 30 days, the physician can update that report within 24 hours of admission and prior to surgery. PLEASE BE SURE that the history and physical you are updating is within 30 days of admission or it WILL NOT meet the requirements for a valid history & physical.
