Medical Coding 2

posted by .

Can someone tell me if I did this right?

This 32-year-old female was burned by hot grease in her kitchen 1 week ago. She is seen in the hospital based wound clinic for large dressing
changes on the both upper extremities following second-degree burns to both arms. This is accomplished without requiring anesthesia.
What codes are assigned for this service?

I think it is:
E015.2, 943.03, 948.1

    In answer to the first question "Anonymous" states burns as 943.03 (unspecified degree). Question clearly states second degree. E codes given (home and cooking food). The main thing here is she is getting her dressings changed. Wouldn't you just use a CPT code? 16030
    I feel that if you post the other answers, you are stating she is being diagnosed as coming in with burns.
