Okay, I'll take a STAB at this coding challenge (Ha, ha, ha) :D

Scenario: Laceration of the left index finger with a knife while preparing meat at the restaurant of employment.

Assuming this is the initial encounter:

ICD 9: 883.0 Open wound, finger, without mention of complication
E920.3 Accidents caused by cutting and piercing instruments or objects; knives, swords, and daggers

ICD 10: S61.211A Laceration without foreign body of left index finger without damage to nail
W26.0XXA Contact with knife
Y92.511 Restaurant or cafe as place of occurrence of the external cause
Y93.G1 Activity; food preparation and clean up
Y99.0 Civilian activity done for income or pay

Whew!!! Have a good day everyone!
