More About This Textbook


Emergency Room Coding will prepare you for the real world of coding in the emergency department setting. The text provides the beginning coder with a solid foundation of how to code ER charts. We focus on the diagnoses and procedures seen in the majority of community-based hospitals. The scenarios in this book are based on real life experiences and will provide the coder with situations s/he will most likely encounter in the emergency room coding environment. The study guide contains 32 emergency room records. The case studies are representative of what is commonly treated in most emergency rooms. Each case study contains an ER report and an answer worksheet.

The ER record serves as a good teaching tool for new coders because ER records do not require as much clinical background to code as inpatient records. However, some of the injury cases may present a challenge for new coders. Also, unlike most coding textbooks, this study guide contains a complete ER report with a full explanation, not just thumbnail sketches. Therefore, Emergency Room Coding is more realistic than the one-to-two line diagnostic statements encountered in most coding textbooks. Finally, the Answer Key for the case studies contains a rationale for all code assignments, as well as directions for locating the correct diagnostic and procedure codes.

A multiple choice final review quiz is included at the end of this study guide as an opportunity for coders to test their coding skill set. Emergency Room Coding is updated annually to reflect the annual coding changes.
