    Cool When do you have "High" MDM in Psych?
    Medical Coding Books
    I code in the Psych ward of a hosp. Most patients there are elderly and are in for Alzheimers and Dementia. I know that if someone has suicidal intentions that that is High MDM. I don't see High MDM for Alzheimers or Dementia but am I wrong? What are your thoughts?

    It could be a combo of things that get you to a high MDM when auditing. I do have a psych specific table of risk if you would like me to fax it to you? The tabe of risk is only 1 of 3 things to look at to determine overal MDM level though.
