Er procedure

  1. Default Er procedure
    Medical Coding Books
    I wanted to double check i am thinking 11730?

    The wound is placed in hibiclens x 5 minutes. Dry and clean right thumb with alcohol wipes.
    Rubber band applied at 1st MCP joint. Thumb's nail and surrounding area cleansed with
    betadine. Digital block of the right first digit done using 2% lidocaine w/o epi 2.5 ml used. Nail is
    gently removed using a steril probe. Nail bed is cleansed with betadine.The wound is then
    bandaged using neosporin, telfa, and tubular gauze.

    dx is traumatic subungual hematoma.

    thank you
