    If the doctor states "She is very poorly responsive at this time and somewhat encephalopathic", would that qualify as a complete ROS?? Or do you need to have a statement "unable to obtain ROS due to pt. is very poorly responsive..."???

    Personally, I would prefer this statment.......

    "unable to obtain ROS due to pt. is very poorly responsive"

    Default I agree

    I give credit for the full ROS/ PFMSH only if the physician specifically states s/he is "unable to obtain because of X reason"

    I would not give credit for the example you give.
