Sorry this is so late, but I was just looking back at some of the old threads.
Yes, I would bill procedures in the unit as long as the procedure and severity of the patients condition are well documented.

Yes, we definitely bill for these procedures done at bedside in the PICU and NICU. In effect, they create a mini-operative suite when the child is too critically ill to be moved.

Hope that helps.
