I understand that I can bill for respiratory procedures performed in a SNF and administered by a registered respiratory therapist or a "trained nurse" with documented training. Where can I refer to the regs that state this?
sallyrnrrt, ADN, RN
which ever state you are in, the regulartory agency that does your surveys,
in Texas for instance , it is DADS
IN NC a repiratory therapist trains nurses or trains an RN and the RN can train floor nurses has to be a total of 15 minutes per day for the treatments check you state regs. We can refer to Myers and Stauffers. for documentation information
also a way to document the "attended neb treatment" for the required 15mins at the time of neb, say xopenex .5mh neb tx at 9am, i noted some assessments as spo2, hr, maybe pre and post tx and #mins, in the little boxes, similar to the way we note bldsug., amt of insulin, and what site.......on the MAR? but the 15 mins is the key amt of time that needs to be documented :::
