I have a case where the patient has a surgical wound infection and dehiscence. The wound was debrided while in the hospital. We are getting them for home health and I am wondering would I code both the infection and dehiscence?

Thanks

I would assume that falls under post-op, so maybe try going that way instead of just looking as the codes separately.
