There is really no way to answer your question with the information that you provided.  We have no way of knowing what was done without seeing the patient's chart.  Nurse would have to tell you what was done and you would bill based on that.  If she did IV infusion then you bill IV infusion.

You are asking a coding question that can't be answered w/out a chart. no, actually it shouldn't be answered w/out looking a the chart. Coding has to be done using the actual chart to be sure all E/M elements of the code is not only applicable but documented.
