Good point about distinction between mental status at evaluation and chronic mental issues. You thinking the MMSE/Folstein?

Wes, Chris

Thanks for the info ! The information about mental status that comes from the evaluation is specific to the context of that medical encounter.

Chronic cognitive impairment conditions should be recorded on the patient diseases list. Both events are non-exclusive, and complementary.

Related to this, I'm tempted to include the mini-mental test in 3.0

Agreed, it's a good point, but there is a similar issue with orientation, object recognition, etc. It's probably better to deal with the specifics in a note or similar. Closing.

For repporting purposes, it might be helpful to differentiate between disturbances in long and short term memory.
