L89.43 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of pressure ulcer of contiguous site of back, buttock and hip, stage 3. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code L89 is used to code Pressure ulcer

Pressure ulcers, also known as pressure sores, bedsores and decubitus ulcers, are localized injuries to the skin and/or underlying tissue that usually occur over a bony prominence as a result of pressure, or pressure in combination with shear and/or friction. The most common sites are the skin overlying the sacrum, coccyx, heels or the hips, but other sites such as the elbows, knees, ankles or the back of the cranium can be affected.
