charting the level of the spinal

  1. 0 How do you chart dermatones properly. At one facility I am employed at, it is acceptable to chart where the sensory level is (iliac crest, umbilicus etc). At another facility, it is charted according to the dermatone level (T4,T10) etc. Is one more acceptable than the other?

    We use dermatone levels to document levels of sensation. I hope this helps.
