Pt admitted to ER for attempting suicide by jumping off a bridge. Psych consult has a 1:1 sitter with pt. Pt now states that he's glad he was saved. However, he will be admitted into Psych once he is physically able. I coded the initial consult now I need to code the subsequental visit but the doctor only puts "suicidal Idealation" as the diagnosis. I could use suicide attempt but I'm not sure which code to use. Please help as soon as possible!!!
