I need an outside opinion. I coded a laceration patient with a cut that bled than stopped and began bleeding again. I counted bleeding as a quality of the cut. The cut as the location. being able to walk without pain as the severity and a plate falling on the foot as context. To get a comprehensive HPI. Is this correct? The coders that audited this chart are saying bleeding is not a quality of the cut, but agree with the rest. Thank you.
