What are some opinions on the facility side of critical care - do you code for nursing critical care or since no true documentation of 1:1 you do not code critical care....

Thanks, Sue

Hi Sue. Our facility doesn't separate nursing CC charges from the ICU Room and Board charges, except when CC occurs in the ED. (No R&B charge in the ED).

Hopr this helps.

critical care

I am always very careful when it comes to charging CC. The first thing I search for is ED physician critical care time, if MD documents 30 mins or more of critical care time spent with pt, then I start looking thru nursing documenation for proof of 1 to 1 care over 30 mins.
