Observation Medicine Section Forum
Clinical Protocols Discussions
Welcome to the Observation Medicine Interest Group Forum! Dr. Chris Baugh and I (Brian Hiestand) are the moderators for this forum. A few ground rules / requests:
1. Check the search function before posting a new question - your question may have already been asked and answered previously.
2. Keep replies courteous and on topic. Chris and I reserve the right to modify responses that do not meet these criteria.
3. Nothing posted here substitutes for actual legal / compliance / CMS opinions. We as a group are happy to share our experiences and work-arounds, but this is not "precedent," "expert witnessing," or "billable hours."
Thanks, and we hope that this is a valuable tool for managing your observation patients and units.
