I have never heard that a patient under age 10 doesn't need an ROS.
Our compliance auditors look for the ROS on all patients, regardless of age.
Even our neonatal patients get an ROS ... it's usually entirely negative with a notation that a neonate on day of life one has NO system review.
The patient may not be able to give this ROS (or any history for that matter), but the parents certainly can.
