Critical Care-Facility Charges for Hospital

My facility is using a coding vendor who wants nursing to document critical care time like providers do. Our nurses document what they do, but don't currently summarize the amount of time they've been at the bedside. We currently use an Epic product and we're wondering if the Epic Flowsheet would help us. Does anyone else have this same issue and how have you solved it?

  • Did you ask why they wanted this? Physician critical care billing is totally different than facility billing, I don't see the reason to record minutes spent by an RN. This sounds fishy...
