Good afternoon,

The following is in a Nemeth w/UEB transcription.

"Missing ANY of the above except for unapproved abbreviation or quantifying prn use = automatic 0 points on the Medication documentation section of the SOAP rubric;"

It is certainly not mathematical but the question is what to do with the equals sign. I really don't think uncontracting the whole thing makes sense. So is the answer to use the Nemeth equals sign or the UEB equals. The new course at P2.2 states

"Non mathematical narrative is transcribed using the symbols and rules of UEB, and mathematical notation is transcribed using the symbols and rules of the Nemeth Code."

My inclination in this situation is to consider the = a UEB symbol, however, I am sure there is an argument to use Nemeth.

Thoughts?
