Episode of admitted patient care:
- External cause codes in the range V00 to Y89 must be accompanied by a place of occurrence code.
- External cause codes V00 to Y34 must be accompanied by an activity code.
Must be a valid ICD-10-AM 10th edition code in the range Y92.0-Y92.9.
ICD-10-AM codes are validated against a number of national and state edits (e.g. combination, CPoA, etc) to improve coding quality.
Queensland Hospital Admitted Patient Data Collection (QHAPDC):
The Place of Occurrence code uses codes from the range Y92.0-Y92.9 and must be sequenced following the External Cause code(s) V00-Y89.
Punctuation is excluded in QHAPDC.
Enables categorisation of injury and poisoning according to factors important for injury control. Necessary for defining and monitoring injury control targets, injury costing and identifying cases for in-depth research.
