If a provider sees a patient through the ER and the time is close to midnight.  The provider documents the note for say 12/31 at 2300-2350 and does admit the patient. However the inpatient admission orders are not written until after midnight say 1/1 at 0130 by this same provider.  What e/m code is correct for this provider.  Can the provider use an admission inpatient e/m code for 1/1?  I am always confused on when these admissions occur right after midnight
