How do I Properly Document Wound Care?

Coding, Wound Care

Wound Care coverage must have specific physician orders for one or all of the following:

  • Instruction/teaching on the wound care
  • Performance of the specific wound care
  • Assessment as to wound site progress/complications
NOTEDocumentation must include type of wound with size, depth, drainage, odor, color, skin condition, with specific interventions provided as ordered by the physician. Wound care is under significant scrutiny.
