Crazy Medical Codes That Actually Exist

When you visit a hospital or doctor’s office and have any type of medical treatment, a medical code is assigned on your chart. Most medical codes are for things like casting a broken arm or putting stitches in to close a cut. Then there are some medical codes that are really out there but are needed so they can be documented properly on your medical chart. Take a look at the list below.

(W59.22XA) Struck By Turtle: How does this happen, turtles are slow. Pay attention to the area around your ankles. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle perhaps?

(R15.2) Fecal Urgency: This is no laughing matter.

(Y93.D1) Accident While Knitting or Crocheting: This competitive sport may require protective gear.

(V95.43XS) Spacecraft collision injuring occupant: At least they are planning for the future. Right now, this is only good for a small handful of people in the world.
