Medical Patient is a patient who has no procedure code listed in the Principal Procedure column or has a minor diagnostic or therapeutic procedure (codes 87.0-99.99) listed in the Principal Procedure Column.
Surgical Patient is a patient with a Surgical Procedure code listed in the Principal Procedure column (excluding principal procedures which are minor diagnostic procedures – codes 87.0 to 99.99).
Dr. Fox, the Chief of Surgery for Community Hospital, wishes to study the records of patients during the past six months who died within two days of surgery. He is not interested in patients who had minor procedures done (diagnostic or therapeutic), only those who had major surgical procedures. He is particularly interested in the records of those patients who did not have an autopsy performed and would like to know the surgeon involved.
