Changing a diagnosis

edited May 2016 in Inpatient Coding
I have been asked to write a policy and procedure regarding changing a
diagnosis in the patient's record after a service such as testing or
procedure has been completed and the patient has been discharged. Does
anyone have something already written that they could share?
