Homework Help: Health Science

Posted by Success on Saturday, September 6, 2008 at 9:38pm.

3-4 Paragraphs:
Your friend Mary works in the medical records department at the local hospital. She is in charge of making sure that the correct diagnostic codes are being recorded for the procedures performed at the hospital. She tells you that she occasionally comes across a code that she does not know, so she looks it up. Mary tells you that she lost her new ICD-9-CM codebook that is currently being used, so she looks up the codes in the old ICD-8 codebook.

What can happen as a result of Mary using codes that are from an outdated manual?

I really need help answering this question.
