There is certainly enough going on in terms of patient condition, actively seizing and unresponsive etc. and intervention by providers to qualify for CC. The patient was seizing and is now unresponive. These were multiple IV interventions, ET intubation, NG etc.
This chart might be worth returning to te physician highlighting why it looks clinically like CC and asking if the physician provided 30 minutes. Also be clear about the elements that can be counted toward CC time.
Coding a 5 could be a bit problematic. Overall it's a good chart but lacks 2/3 elements of SH/FH and PMH. The physician noted the patient was unresponsive and actively seizing which I think gets you part of the way to the history caveat. But I'd like for some more documentation...like due to unreponsiveness complete history could not be obtained. This could also be an issue for physician education about chart completion. Also there might be some procedures that can be coded, but the chart doesn't make clear whether the physician did or closely managed the procedures.
