GeneralJelly-fish Suicide ... there's a code for that Pin

"Code Chaos: Another nightmare for doctors, courtesy of the federal government" [^].
"Ever considered suicide by jellyfish? Have you ended up in the hospital after being injured during the forced landing of your spacecraft? Or been hurt when you were sucked into the engine of an airplane or when your horse-drawn carriage collided with a trolley?
 
... snip ...
 
So these exotic injuries, codeless for so many years, will henceforth be known, respectively, as T63622A (Toxic effect of contact with other jellyfish, intentional self-harm, initial encounter), V9542XA (Forced landing of spacecraft injuring occupant, initial encounter), V9733XA (Sucked into jet engine, initial encounter), and V80731A (Occupant of animal-drawn vehicle injured in collision with streetcar, initial encounter)."
Taxonomy freaks are going to party-down, come October 14, this year when the new version ICD codes (155,000 of them) are adopted throughout the Corporate-Occupied-MallBurgerLand (U.S.A.) death-care system.

Want to see the current codes (ICD-10): [^].
“The best hope is that one of these days the Ground will get disgusted enough just to walk away ~ leaving people with nothing more to stand ON than what they have so bloody well stood FOR up to now.” Kenneth Patchen, Poet
