Struck by turkey, unarmed brawl & more — 12 ICD-10 codes to know for Thanksgiving

With Black Friday shopping, family feuds, reckless eating and competitive sports, Thanksgiving can be a hazardous holiday.

That's why Health Data Management partnered with ADP AdvancedMD, an ambulatory practice management solutions, EHR software and billing services vendor, to compile a list of ICD-10 codes that could be helpful this time of year.

Twelve to keep on hand:

1. Y93.G3: Activity, cooking and baking
2. W61.42: Struck by turkey
3. W71.43: Pecked by turkey
4. W61.49: Other contact with turkey
5. R63.2: Polyphagia (overeating)
6. S11.24: Puncture wound with foreign body of pharynx and cervical esophagus
7. W21.01: Struck by football
8. Y04.0: Assault by unarmed brawl or fight
9. H53.10: Unspecified subjective visual disturbances
10. W21.01: Lack of adequate sleep
11. F34.9: Persistent mood disorder
12. Z63.79: Other stressful life events affecting family and household
