When coding a CVA is the dominant side considered to be if the patient is left or right handed?
Our orders have never contained this and I would like to capture more specifics.

You are correct, dominant side refers to if the patient is right or left handed. That is all I know about this condition. Hopefully a more experienced coder can weigh in on this question
