Is there any guidelines stating if an ulcer size needs to be documented before or after debridement? My General Surgery office documents size prior to debridement but a coworkers Plastic Surgeon office documents size after debridement. Or should they both be documenting before and after sizes?

Thanks,
Tammy King, CPC
