How do your facilities handle "HIV" documentation?  What about the coding clinic that says if once coded as B20 the patients condition should always be coded to B20?  Are you querying with each admission or checking prior accounts to see if ever coded to B20?  We have a few patients that we know have been diagnosed with HIV ds/AIDS but are on antiretrovirals and are asymptomatic. We are getting inconsistent answers to queries on the same patient on each admission.
