Hi all, I have a question. We had a patient that came through the ED December 23 @ 12:49 through the ED, admitted to IP @ 19:17. They were changed to Obs at 20:02. Then had an admit order for 12/24 at 10:16 and d/c'd on 12/26 @ 4p. When CM was trying to place the patient to the NH, they told the NH she had been there 3 days when she was only 2 days since a few hours was for Obs. The account went to the CM Committee and they agreed with IP status. So now we are trying to determine how we don't have to payback the $23k? Any thoughts?
