    It's not mandatory. If the patient is in to see the doctor for a specific reason (problem focused), then there may not be a ROS. Just a FYI, though - if they do vitals during ROS, that counts as consititutional.

    Maric-ann, Vitals would not count as anything within the ROS; that would fall under constitutional in the examination, because vitals are an objective assessment, not subjective.

    Actually, codes that require a comprehensive history require a review of all 14 systems, with at least 10 systems documented.
