Webinar: Documenting Drainage Quantity

Coverage of surgical dressings by third-party payers depends, in part, on the volume of drainage of the ulcer being treated. Providers who dispense surgical dressings and expect payment from a third-party payer must document the drainage quantity of the ulcer. This webinar will review this requirement, list the options for drainage documentation, and detail exactly how drainage documentation should be documented in the medical record.

At the end of Dr. Lehrman’s presentation stay for a Question & Answer session where he will answer any questions that you might have.

What You Will Learn:

  • List the keywords needed in documenting ulcer drainage when dispensing surgical dressings.
  • Define different terms used to document ulcer drainage quantity.
  • List the drainage volume requirements associated with commonly used surgical dressings.

The event is finished.
