Accident and Emergency Treatment Tables

A broad classification of types of treatment or guidance which may be provided to a PATIENT as a result of Accident and Emergency Attendance.

Description

  • A broad classification of types of treatment or guidance which may be provided to a PATIENT as a result of Accident and Emergency Attendance.

  • Certain items are sub-analysed to specify the diagnosis, investigation or treatment more precisely. These are marked with an asterisk. The diagnosis sub-analysis list follows the main diagnosis list, and the treatment sub-analysis list follows the main treatment list.

  • It is recommended that computerised systems provide a minimum of six character fields for each category in order to accommodate more detailed information if necessary. Where fewer than six characters are required for coding, such as for investigations and treatments, it is recommended that the codes are left-justified and the unused fields left blank.
