    Default Kleb ESBL+ UTI??

    Is this correct> 041.3, 599.0.

    Confused on Kleb ESBL, there's a code for Klebsiella pneumoniae 041.3. But is this correct.

    Thanks

    Default

    That is what I would use...

    Klebsiella pneumoniae is the type of species the infection is, so I would feel safe using it. JMO
