Weigh in on a MedicareFind Forum question:

I'm looking for any information on changing patient type orders from Inpatient to Observation - without using a CC44.  Is this allowed?  Can the physician order Inpatient status then come back later and write a new order to change the status to Observation?  Thank you!
