My organization is looking to expand our CDI coverage to our NICU/<28 days population. Does anyone else currently review these patients?
Yes, We are a freestanding Children's and Women's Hospital with a NICU. Shoot me an email if you have any questions.
Thanks so much, I will email you!
Hi, yes we do at the Children's Hospital of Phila
Clarifying "respiratory distress" as HDM/RDS
Clarifying "suspected sepsis" as either confirmed dx of sepsis or ruled out
Clarifying electrolyte abnormalities instead of just listing abnormal lab values
ABLA in infants who have pulmonary or IVH's
Maternal conditions affecting newborn
These are just a few that I can think of off the top of my head...I'll think of more eventually, lol
We also clarify Chronic Lung Disease and Feeding difficulties at Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital
Hi Jeff, We have recently started reviewing NICU cases for opportunity and started a program as of Feb 2023. We have a Level 3 nicu and I am finding lots of opportunity especially with respiratory distress unspecified, not documenting HIE and doing cooling. I am having a lot of push back from the coders regarding coding maternal conditions. I was wondering if you could give me any direction and or education on this?
