    Emergency Department Coding Handbook Nena Scott, MSEd, RHIA, CCS, CCS-P, CCDS, AHIMA-Approved ICDCM/PCS Trainer This handbook is a quick reference guide for coders in emergency department (ED) settings.

      However, a patient in a hospital setting, and especially an emergency setting, may often display aggressive behavior as a result of his or her clinical diagnosis or the environment.   The emergency department of every hospital serves to treat people with major trauma or serious injuries.

    Emergency Department Patients Awaiting Care Summary This policy outlines the mandatory requirements and procedures for staff in Emergency Departments for patients, their families and carers immediately following the triage process and while awaiting the commencement of clinical care while in the Emergency. This comprehensive book provides practical guidance on the care of the critical patient in the emergency department. It focuses on the ED physician or provider working in a community hospital where, absent the consulting specialists found in a large academic center, the provider must evaluate and stabilize critically ill and injured patients alone.
