I'm coding a consult and all they have under ROS is "remainder of review of systems was negative". I was able to pull card/vasc and hem/lymph from the history, which I think I can use for the ROS but then the rest they say "remainder of review of systems was negative"?

  • A complete ROS inquires about the system(s) directly related to the problem(s) identified in the HPI plus all additional body systems.

    DG: At least ten organ systems must be reviewed. Those systems with positive or pertinent negative responses must be individually documented. For the remaining systems, a notation indicating all other systems are negative is permissible. In the absence of such a notation, at least ten systems must be individually documented.
  • I would count neuro..
