Development of a standardized peripheral nerve block procedure note form.


Journal Article

OBJECTIVES:Despite the tremendous growth of peripheral nerve blocks, no standard format exists to document their performance. Our objective was to create a peripheral nerve block form based on key elements of literature evidence and on our own group consensus. RESULTS:We describe the process and results of our multi-institutional effort to construct a standardized peripheral nerve block procedure form. CONCLUSION:A form was developed to help meet the medical, legal, and billing requirements of documentation consistent with the performance of peripheral nerve block.
