||A fall is not a
disease, rather regarded as a cause leading to serious outcomes. Falls, called
unintentional injuries, can be coded in E880-886, E888 with International Classification
of Disease, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) codes. The term 'Fall-related
injuries' is widely used to describe the outcomes (e.g. brain trauma, or hip fracture) of
fall events. There are several factors that are related to a fall. For instance, a fall
can occur the result of loss of footing, or stroke.
