E/M Weekly Tip: Review of Systems - "All others Negative"

Answer:
It is acceptable to use the statement "All others Negative" and "No other complaints" as long as the pertinent systems/symptoms/problems were addressed and documented.

Note:

  • We cannot use information twice, i.e., documentation under the History of Present Illness (HPI)
  • Considered a "complete (10 or more)" ROS
  • Avoid using statements like: "10 systems negative, 12 systems negative, etc."
