    I am new to ED coding can anyone help me with codes for:-

    Q: Patient was involved in an automobile accident where he was the unrestrained driver of a vehicle hit by another car on a major street. Patient suffered a 3.4 cm laceration of the forehead, multiple contusions involving the lower leg, several abrasions involving the right lower arm and possible concussion. The forehead wound was repaired using a layered closure. The abrasions were cleaned. He refused admission to the hospital to monitor for the presence of concussion??

    Just for your own practice why don't you submit to us the codes you feel are appropriate and we will assist from there. This is a straight forward coding scenario that you should have no problem with, new to ED or not. I feel kind of funny just spoon feeding the answers and it will not help you grow in your education.

    I agree with mitchellde, tell us what codes you would have use. And then also this sounds like a test question.

    look at these codes to see if they help you. S01.81XA, S80.10XA, S40.811A, V43.52XA,Y29.410, 12032. I did not code for the concussion
