Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2010-08-11


These are the most frequent causes of hospitalization due to injury for Manitobans. Causes of injury were identified from the hospital abstract and grouped into injury categories according to the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) system. Causes of injury were coded in ICD-9-CM codes prior to April 1, 2004 and then coded in ICD-10-CA codes after that date. Injuries coded in ICD-10-CA were converted to ICD-9-CM codes before grouping them into injury categories. See the Injury Categories (External Causes, ICD-9-CM) glossary term for a list of all the injury categories.

Excluded from the count of hospitalizations due to injury are those related to medical error and drug complications. For a more detailed list of exclusions, see the External Cause of Injury Codes and Categories concept.
