I code profee for a cardiology practice, a patient was OP in the hospital the note says: "Discussion made with pt via telephone conversation due to current COVID rule out.
Due to the nature of this patient's suspected COVID-19 isolation status and efforts to prevent spread of infection and to conserve limited and dwindling personal protective equipment, the physical examination highlights of the hospitalist/ED physician, bedside nurse was thoroughly reviewed and provided below. Pertinent medical records and objective data were reviewed in detail. I have talked to the patient myself by phone call to his room". History and MDM were documented, Physical Exam- Deferred as pt in Covid 19 r/o
