Case Number 3595
Request Date 21/04/2014
Completion Date 29/04/2014

 

Details of the Request

Further to my initial FOI request on April 14, it appears the codes I sent out for admissions for rat bites were incorrect. I said E906.1 and W53.11XA, but I have since been advised that the correct codes are T14.1 - rat bite - and W53.9.

Therefore, please disregard my previous request and I will refine my enquiry as follows:

Can I request details in relation to ICD diagnosis code T14.1 - rat bite - and W53.9 - bitten by rat, initial encounter.

 

More specifically, I would like to know:

  1. How many patients were admitted to your trust and/or diagnosed with an ICD diagnosis code of T14.1 and W53.9 in the calendar year 2013, and 2014 so far?
     
  2. For each case, could you please provide a brief description of the treatment carried out on patients diagnosed with T14.1 and W53.9?
     
  3. Could you also provide the age and gender of each patient?

 

Details of the Response

1. How many patients were admitted to your trust and/or diagnosed with an ICD diagnosis code of T14.1 and W53.9 in the calendar year 2013, and 2014 so far?

1 patient was coded with this diagnosis between 2013 and 2014 to date.

 

2. For each case, could you please provide a brief description of the treatment carried out on patients diagnosed with T14.1 and W53.9?

The Trust does not have this data: there were no recorded procedures against this patient.

 

3. Could you also provide the age and gender of each patient?

The Trust holds this information, but considers it is exempt under section 40(2) of the Act, as it constitutes personal data.
