Ai & d of bartholnian gland

Becky Posted Wed 24th of February, 2016 11:00:34 AM

A time out was completed, the area was prepped with betadine, lidocaine was injected, and a small incision was made. We were unable to express any purulent material or place a ward catheter. Silver nitrate was used for hemostasis at the end of the procedure.

van I still bill an I & d since they were unable to express anything?

Since, I and D was not performed during the procedure, only the preparation of the site was done followed by closure. Hence, we cannot bill for I&D.
