This diagnosis is a part of ICD10 collection.
- This code covers TWO situations:
- When the stage presumably is known by somebody, but was recorded and so the data collector doesn't have the stage available to them
- When it is "unstageable" from a technical standpoint, i.e. can't see the wound bed.
