I need to code a specialty consult visit for a 1 day old Newborn. The patient status in the hospital facility is labeled as Newborn. Would I code this as Inpatient and use the date of birth as the admission date, or Outpatient since there is no technical "admission"? Or do you use what the mother's chart states? Thanks!
