5 Ways to Embarrass Yourself and Spend Thanksgiving in the Hospital

We wish you a very happy Thanksgiving from your friends at the Charge Capture Blog! To celebrate this gastronomic holiday, and to also encourage you to keep up with your ICD-10 preparation, we’ve found five ICD-10 codes that you may encounter this Thanksgiving.

W61.42XD - Struck by turkey, subsequent encounter
Thanksgiving isn’t the best day for turkeys around the country. If you find yourself confronted with a live turkey, you may want to rethink your Thanksgiving strategy.

W29.0 - Contact with powered kitchen appliance, subsequent encounter
Some kitchen appliances are only brought out a couple of times a year, and not everyone is so adept at using them properly. This diagnosis code applies to casualties from can-openers, mixers, blenders, and garbage disposals.

K21.9 - Gastro-esophageal reflux disease without esophagitis
This might be one of the most common side effects of Thanksgiving, as the holiday is synonymous with "heartburn and indigestion."

W52.XXXA - Crushed, pushed or stepped on by crowd or human stampede, initial encounter
If you are brave (and crazy) enough to participate in the Black Friday sales that now start on Thanksgiving Day, you might experience this unfortunate ICD-10 code.

W22.02XA - Walked into lamppost, initial encounter
The Thanksgiving Day Parade is a tradition that draws thousands of people to the streets to watch the floats and marching bands go by. But be careful, after a few too many cups of hard apple cider, those lampposts can jump out from nowhere!
