General Notes

I10_NPR_IP indicates the total number of ICD-10-PCS procedures (valid and invalid) coded on the ED admission record (i.e., inpatient record). In assigning I10_NPR_IP, the first listed procedure is included in the count, even if it is blank, so long as there is an additional procedure present (see table below).

Value Description
0 No procedures are coded on the record.
1 Only the first listed procedure (I10_PR_IP1) is coded. All secondary procedures are blank.
2 One secondary procedure (I10_PR_IP2) is coded. The first listed procedure (I10_PR_IP1) may be coded or blank.
3 The second and third procedures (I10_PR_IP2 and I10_PR_IP3) are coded. The first listed procedure (I10_PR_IP1) may be coded or blank.

A maximum of nine inpatient procedures have been retained on the NEDS. States that provide fewer than nine procedures have had the procedure vector padded with blank values. For example, if a state supplied 5 procedures, I10_PR_IP6 through I10_PR_IP9 are blank (" ") on all records from that state. States that provide more than nine procedures may have information truncated.
