I am struggling with the documentation of RSV bronchiolitis/pneumonia. The physicians seem to use these two terms interchangeably on infants with RSV infections. One day they call it bronchiolitis, the next day pneumonia, or they write bronchiolitis/pneumonia. Do you query for clarification or code both?
A pediatrician told me that if they have bronchiolitis they also always have pneumonia?? That you can have pneumonia without bronchiolitis but if they have bronchiolitis they always have pneumonia??
