Credit?

    I'm working on a chart:

    CC: productive cough and shortness of breath.

    HPI lists: SOB, productive cough, pleuritic chest pain.

    Under the ROS it states:

    Pt has some pleuritic chest pain, cough productive of yellowish sputum. No PND. No orthopnea. She denies any GI or GU symptoms. All other systems were reviewed and were negative.

    I would credit, but each item only once, building up from chief complaint to HPI to ROS (which will be complete with the "All other systems negative")
