Because not everyone views a fetus as equal to a born child, and don't have to live in PLM hell with you?

Wow, you're another idiot. That post was not about gender.

Your drugstore marketing ploy doesn't prove anything, either.

Your question is unanswerable, and proof that you don't understand the discussion.
Could you please tell us all what a missed period is? Or what a missed appointment is?
You've claimed that a woman is pregnant even after her fetus is dead.

I will repeat for the third and final time: If you were pregnant and then miscarried, would you answer "yes " if asked by someone, if you were pregnant?.

A simple yes or no will suffice.

If you want to dodge it again, I will understand and bid you a buh bye and good night ;)

I sure as fu** hope it was dead tissue, or that cremation would have been mighty uncomfortable.

Call it a corpse, medical waste, dead tissue, or whatever floats your boat, Charon. Do you always get hung up on terminology? Life is too short for this crap.

Nobody cares what you "view" a fetus as. A female.(daughter) or male (son) is in that womans womb and that is a fact.

So why do you suppose Leesyboo is denying that?

What if the etus is intersexed, or terminates before displaying gender characteristics?

Katie: "Now, wasn't your original claim that D&Cs are different depending on spontaneous and induced abortions? From what it says above, there is no difference."
A patient placed within a particular Diagnostic Related Group doesn't mean he/she is same as others in that group. The hospital is reimbursed the same for those in that group, even though they may receive different treatments for different reasons.
Submissions for reimbursement to Medicare for an induced abortion would be clear it is for an induced abortion. Doc/code for Rape/incest/life of mother and Proper ICD-9 code.
I shared yesterday that ICD-9 codes are clear that differences exist:
634 Spontaneous abortion (non-elective)
http://www.icd9data.com/2012/Volume1/630-679/...
635 Legally induced abortion (elective)
http://www.icd9data.com/2012/Volume1/630-679/...
636 Illegally induced abortion (elective)
http://www.icd9data.com/2012/Volume1/630-679/...
I'm thinking those numbers would be attached to these numbers 770 and 779 to specify if a D&C was used or not. But the code for abortion with D&C is all by itself and the code for abortion without D&C is all by itself. Meaning, the D&C procedure is not different for the type of abortion experienced which is what you've continuously claimed in error.

A bit of friendly advice; Triple L's and your cups of stupidly stubborn seem to've runneth over, NR.

If you knew you'd miscarried, you'd answer No, you were not pregnant because the spontaneous abortion is complete.

If you hadn't realized you'd miscarried, you'd answer Yes, you are pregnant because the spontaneous was not complete.

Pretty basic stuff, JM.

Nope. A pregnancy can continue even if the fetus dies. Hell, there are cases of pregnancy with no fetuses at all. Pregnancy refers to the activity of the woman's body.

Exactly, molar pregnancy. No fetus even though fertilization occurred, the abnormal growth will trigger the body to have symptoms of pregnancy.

If you miscarried your child would you still answer 'yes " when asked if you were pregnant?
I would answer I am pregnant but there is no heartbeat, I am going in for a D&C tomorrow to terminate the pregnancy so we can try to get pregnant again as soon as possible.

The problem w/ your 'logic' is 770 & 779 are Diagnostic Related Groups (DRGs). They are not codes for specific diagnoses or procedures. They encompass related - but various - diagnoses. Medicare patients in each respective group would be expected to utilize hospital resources at similar levels (but not same exact procedures/treatments). Hospitals are reimbursed a predetrmined amount for Medicare patients within each DRG.

You read the DRG title and made assumptions that would be favorable to your argument. It's an unsubstantiated leap.

Nice try, though.

I find it interesting that you latched onto Medicare's DRG reimbursement system to argue D&C abortions.

I don't know many people on Medicare who are pregnant from rape/incest, or whose lives are at risk from pregnancy.

Do you, Katie?

Foo: How typically dishonest of No Relevance to leave out one of the more important lines in that article:
"The report recommends that nurses specializing in informatics work with interdisciplinary teams to modify clinical documentation and workflow." Not all nurses are involved in billing and coding dear.
Elise: He doesn't know what informatics is. He doesn't know that nursing is a wide open profession and many specialties in nursing do not involve patient care. He is ignorant and needs to shut up.
__________
Foo reinforced my point.
"The report recommends that nurses specializing in informatics work with interdisciplinary teams to modify clinical documentation and workflow."
The report recommends that you familiarize yourself w/ coding to improve your "documentation & workflow." You work on a clinical interdisciplinary team, dear. Your knowledge of coding improves chances for reimbursement.
You know what, honey? You are more than welcome to come to my job and tell the DON how to do her job. She instructs us on our responsibilities. We staff nurses, including the charge nurses, do not worry about medical codes. None of my fellow nurses that work on the floor, anywhere have to deal with billing. We are responsible for proper documentation. End of issue. You can Google to your little hearts content; you are not on the job and you know nothing.

The point, Stupid Sassy, that I was discussing, is that there has BEEN no miscarriage. That's what a MISSED miscarriage MEANS, you Idiot. Your question doesn't apply. If the miscarriage were complete, then the woman would not BE pregnant. If the fetus is still inside her uterus, then it's NOT complete, and she is still pregnant.

Again, I ask you, could you please explain to us all what a MISSED period is, or a MISSED appointment?
