The updated ICD-10 coding system has brought clinicians very interesting (and, admittedly, slightly humorous) diagnostics entries. As the weather cools, the last leaves fall off the trees and tables get packed with food and family for Thanksgiving, it’s a good time to take a look at some of those codes that will have doctors and patients prepared (for anything) this year.
The following infographic created by PatientKeeper compiles 10 Thanksgiving-themed ICD-10 codes that physicians’ should keep top of mind during this holiday season, including:
– W61.43XA: Pecked by a turkey
– W29.0XXA: Contact with powered kitchen appliance, initial encounter
– Z63.1: Problems in relationship with in-laws
