Unformatted text preview: pain. The physician orders an EKG to rule out a possible cardiac event. Codes: 786.5 (chest pain) Patient 3: A 72 year old diabetic female exhibits a non-healing wound on her left foot. I actually code not find just one code that really fit this injury, so I am going to list the ones that I think fit. Codes: 998.3 (disruption of wound) 998.83 (non-healing surgical wound) I am not sure of this one really 892.0 (wound on foot) This is the one that I think is correct Sorry if this assignment is not done correctly.
