    Default jones dressing/splint

    I am looking for a code for application of jones dressing/splint?

  2. #2

    Smile Jones dressing

    The Jones Dressing is more than just an ace wrap, it is a splint. Code the splint application according to the body part splinted (short leg, short arm, etc.). Remeber to add the modifier for laterallity (L,R).
