During an inpatient stay the patient was admitted for Hyponatremia, Hypoglycemia, and Delirium that were all resolved by the 2nd day of admission. Still code them as such even though they are resolved?

The patient is still admitted and the issues have resolved? Would query what else is going on. Are they still monitoring the issues?
