"Appropriate" - I do not count that for psych unless specificallly documented. Appropriate what? (I may be too conservative, but I never have had a complaint!)
"Landmarks clear" - Landmarks for an ear exam usually involve any items of note that can be observed on the external ear, auditory canal, and/or TM. In this case, I would request clarificaion if the "landmarks" are an extention of the TM exam or if these refered to the external ear, in which you may give another. But if this is part of the canal/TM exam, no, I would not give another bullet.
"No sign of injury" - here I would give credit, as I interpret this as another way of documenting a normal exam.
Don't you LOVE these grey areas? When 1997 really is supposed to be more clear cut, right?
Anyway, that is one man's opinion, and you know what they say about opinions....
