E/M same day as chemo

The Assessment and plan should reflect the status of ongoing issues. Are the problems stable, worsening or resolved? Was there an assessement of medications, noting changes? Are there new problems being worked up? With cancer the patients, the physicians are not only assessing their disease but the ongoing toxicity to chemo. They need to be constantly assessed to determine if the next infusion should proceed. They don't just have cancer, they have fatigue, pancytopenia, bleo lung, neuropathy...the list goes on.
