If a physician documents a cauti not poa, and is seen by infection prevention and the cauti does not meet CDC guidelines thus not reportable to NHSN. Is it still considered a HAC?
Your Infection Prevention Practitioners will not report it out as such because they are abstracting the record and it doesn't meet criteria. But, Coding and CDI have two choices--1) Code it or 2) Query/clinically validate.
Once a diagnosis has been entered in the record those are your two choices.
