Injury and illness codes

1. Nature of the Injury
2. Location of Injury Codes
3. Occupational Illness Codes

Use both the nature of injury and location of injury codes to IDENTIFY the nature and body part affected for fatal and nonfatal injuries. Place the combined CODEs in the FORM F6180.55a, item 5i. When an individual has sustained multiple injuries, the most severe of these is to be identified. If the injuries are of equal severity, for example, cuts or abrasions on arms and legs, then the multiple location code "8" may be used.
Use the occupational illness codes that IDENTIFY ILLNESSES. Place this code IN FORM F6180.55a, item 5i.
