Additional Info

  • This is a procedure code for a patient who is on any sort of infection isolation precautions.
  • It includes any/all of the following kinds of isolation protocols:
    • gloves only
    • gloves and gown
    • mask
    • negative pressure room use
    • reverse isolation
    • cohorting the patient with other patients with the same pathogen

In the context of Colonized with organism (not infected)

If a patient is placed on Isolation, infectious on arrival only for the reason of pre existing MRSA (or other colonization), then code Admit Diagnosis Colonized with organism (not infected) and code the isolation as an Admit Procedure.

Isolation for Use of Cytotoxic Agents

  • This is NOT included because such isolation (e.g. keeping pregnant nurses from caring for patients getting certain teratogenic medications) is not isolating the patient.
