ICD-9 NJDOH External Cause of Injury

The NJDOH External Cause of Injury codes were grouped to be consistent with the injury case definitions found in the Consensus Recommendations for Using Hospital Discharge Data for Injury Surveillance (2003) developed by the State and Territorial Injury Program Directors Association (STIPDA) Injury Surveillance Workgroup (see pages 7-11). These codes are used in the Injury Hospitalization Query Module.

Selections available in NJSHAD are numbered in the leftmost column. The codes are broken out by intent in the columns of the table.
