Induced labor: If failed, assign code for the method of induction which failed ,for eg drugs or mechanical ( foleys catheter induction is called induction with "Bouggie' which is a type of mechanical induction).
For induction with drug: 659.10,659.11,659.13
Induction Mechanical....659.00, 659.01, 65903.

If successful ,assign a code to relate/indicate the reason for the induction.
Next, whether the bouggie( foley's) is introduced by the midwife or doctor, the doctor who conducts the delivery gets score.
Hope this helps.
