Aspiration pneumonia is a serious, life-threatening, all-too-common condition that doesn’t always get the attention it arguably deserves. Coding and CDI departments should have a solid understanding of the coding rules and clinical indicators associated with aspiration pneumonia, as well as the impacts on quality and reimbursement, in order to correctly capture and report this critical illness.
