I am new to coding inpatient hemodialysis for physicians and I have a question about documentation. When the doctor sees the patient while on dialysis, do they have to actually document, "patient seen on dialysis"? Also if they are on CRRT, is it assumed that they were seen while on dialysis or does it have to be specifically documented? Thanks to anyone who can help. :confused:
