IV push

I would code the following:

96374 for the Zofran push at 1800- the push of the initial drug.
96375 for the Dilaudid push at 1805- it is an additional sequential push of a new drug.
96376 for the second push of Dilaudid at 1840-it is an additional sequential push same drug and was given over 30 mins after initial push.

Hope that helps!
