question about E code

  1. Default question about E code

    Hi! I have some questions about E code.

    1.
    a current coder told me that garage(place of work) in E849.3 means "parking lot and it is used when patient is working there as a job".

    If so, what is different between that one and parking lot in E849.8?

    Please explain about these these and what is difference as well.
    I am planing to take a very important job interview and having an job interview is very rare opportunity.... .

    Is this code only about sexually abuse or it can be any kind of abuse...?


    Please let me konw these.
    Thank you so much!

  2. Default question about E code
    E849.3 this is code for industrial place or premises means person who is working at that place got injured. e.g Garage This is a place where person injured is working.

    E 849.8 code for other specified place. e .g parking lot or parking place. Here person who is injured is not working but injury occurred when he is present at that place when injury occurred.

    E 967 Perpetrator of child and adult abuse. Abuse can be any kind not necessarily sexual.

    Just one more question----. What if someone who works for parking lot injured? what can be the right Ecode...?
    E849.3 doesn't have "Parking lot" and only has "garage" so it makes me confusing... .

    Thank you so much in advance!
