New code for Struck by Turtle

Category: 

No, seriously. W5922XA: Struck by Turtle, Initial Encounter. This is just one of the new ICD-10 codes. I am glad that is taken care of. I would hate to be struck by a Turtle and not have my PCP be able to file it properly. There is also Bitten by Turtle and Other Encounter with Turtle, each with follow-up codes as well. I am glad my tax money is being well spent.
