I am dogged about POA-Y and POA-N. I never tell providers that W & U are options for POA indicators so i was surprised to even get this question. I've been asked if POA-W (undetermined) will appear as a HAC or not (naturally it would apply to only the hospital acquired conditions)? Many years ago I believe I was taught that W will not but U will (I liken it Y/W or N/U). I cannot find a reference for it.
Thanks for your time and expertise.
