i have a psychiatrist that wants full credit for a comprehensive examination when the patient is unable to do a mini-mental assessment. I thought credit was only given in the subjective areas, hx, ros, pfsh, when a patient was unable to supply information after all attempts (family members, chart, etc.) were exhausted. I do not remember reading anything about the objective examination being eligible for credit if the patient was unable to participate. Can someone advise me if I am missing something ;)
