Post op complications
We are experiencing problems with physicians documenting a post op condition , which is coded as a post op complication. When they receive their Crimson quality data and the charts are reviewed, they are telling us that the condition was not a complication of the procedure but the condition occurred in the post op time period and that is why they documented as a post op condition. How are people education their physicians on documenting conditions that occur after surgery? If they document "post procedural xxxx", would the condition still be coded as a post op complication?
