Pediatric oncology secondary diagnosis
I notice many of the pediatric oncology charts have increased length of stay. Other than Dx. the cancer and chemo/radiation tx. pancytopenia assoc w chemo, and adverse effect of chemo. I have discussed the importance of documenting malnutrition/obesity. Does anyone else have any other suggestions of common secondary diagnosis in this population? Maybe hyposplenia? What are you seeing in your hospitals?
