Coding, Classification and Reimbursement

  • 1.  N/G tube

    Good Morning,
    In the ER setting, if the RN establishes a nasogastric tube and it's position is verified by radiograph, do you go ahead and code 43752 or is this code reserved for physician or other qualified professional?  We are have a discussion about the code assignment.
    Thanks for your input!
