|External ICD10 Documentation|
This diagnosis is a part of ICD10 collection.
If this happens repeatedly during the same ward or unit stay, only code it the first time it happens, regardless of whether it is an Admit Diagnosis or Acquired Diagnosis, rather than each time it happens. See ICD10 codes only coded the first time for other diagnoses coded this way.
- Code this as a comorbidity, even if it's not being treated. This differs from the pre-ICD10 rules.
- If it is stable, and is not part of the reason for the current admission, then there is no need to also code it as an admit code.
