Observation Medicine Section Forum
Operations and Staffing 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.
i hope everyone is going to the obs conference in nashville this september.
Hi, I'm looking to put together a presentation on the effectiveness of ED run protocol driven observation units. If anyone has a template presentation or articles that they recommend looking at please let me know. I'm wanting to show this to our hospitalist group since we are getting lots of push back to accept patients that do not meet criteria.
Thanks so much!
