Influenza due to avian influenza virus with pneumonia J09.X1 Influenza due to identified novel influenza A virus with pneumonia Explanation : Codes in category J09 Influenza due to certain identified influenza viruses should be assigned only for confirmed cases. “Confirmation” does not require positive laboratory testing of a specific influenza virus but does need to be based on the provider’s diagnostic statement, which should not include terms such as “possible,” “probable,” or “suspected.” Patient with pneumonia due to Klebsiella pneumoniae develops superimposed MRSA ventilator-associated pneumonia J15.0 Pneumonia due to Klebsiella pneumoniae J95.851 Ventilator associated pneumonia B95.62 Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection as the cause of diseases classified elsewhere Explanation : Code assignment for ventilator-associated pneumonia is based on the provider’s documentation of the relationship between the condition and the procedure and is reported only when the provider has documented ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). A patient may be admitted with one type of pneumonia and subsequently develop VAP. In this example, the principal diagnosis code describes the pneumonia diagnosed at the time of admission, with code J95.851 Ventilator associated pneumonia, assigned as secondary.

Diseases of the Skin and Subcutaneous Tissue (L00–L99) Chapter Specific Guidelines with Coding Examples The chapter specific guidelines from the ICD-1 0 -CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting have been provided below. Along with these guidelines are coding examples, contained in the shaded boxes, that have been developed to help illustrate the coding and/or sequencing guidance found in these guidelines. a. Pressure ulcer stage codes 1) Pressure ulcer stages Codes from category L89, Pressure ulcer, identify the site of the pressure ulcer as well as the stage of the ulcer. The ICD- 10 -CM classifies pressure ulcer stages based on severity, which is designated by stages 1-4, unspecified stage and unstageable. Assign as many codes from category L89 as needed to identify all the pressure ulcers the patient has, if applicable. 2) Unstageable pressure ulcers Assignment of the code for unstageable pressure ulcer (L89.--0) should be based on the clinical documentation. These codes are used for pressure ulcers whose stage cannot be clinically determined (e.g., the ulcer is covered by eschar or has been treated with a skin or muscle graft) and pressure ulcers that are documented as deep tissue injury but not documented as due to trauma. This code should not be confused with the

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
