Documenting Medical Necessity: A Practical Guide for Home Health - CLOSEOUT ITEM
Initial patient assessment in home health can be tricky. If documentation does not adequately provide a reason for skilled nursing care in the home, you might not get reimbursed at all. In Documenting Medical Necessity: A Practical Guide for Home Health,
author Heather Calhoun, RN, BSN, HCS-D, COS-C, provides down-to-earth, conversational documentation tips with dozens of example scenarios to help nurses understand medical necessity and document in a manner that encourages proper and complete reimbursement.
