In cases where a patient with an overdose was intubated and transfered to the ICU and then to a medical ward with no other info given, how should I code the stay in the ICU?

HIO Team answers:

Intensive care treatment can be coded with the Code 96.8** Complex treatment in intensive medical care unit (basic procedure): x to xxx effort points .

The effort points are calculated according to the coding guideline, which we attached the pages to this topic.
