    Are you referring to an acute care setting, long term care or what? I do not know if a list exists, other than the "Red Book" which lists ICD-9 codes. However, if your question was a little more specific you might get the answer you need from someone. Are you a nurse? Student? Why do you need the info and how much do you need?
