The Most Bizarre Injuries Hospitals Are Seeing!

When someone goes to the doctor for an injury, the doctor has to record the injury with a code — which covers everything from bug bites to water ski accidents to getting hit by a baseball — for health insurance claim purposes. W2202, for example, is “walked into a lamppost,” while W6132 is “struck by a chicken” — something that sent 200 patients to the hospital last year.

Here are some of the strangest injuries that doctors recorded in 2016:

  • 17,200 patients walked into a wall
  • 25,000 walked into a piece of furniture
  • 400 walked into a lamppost
  • 3,400 came in “contact with a powered lawn mower”
  • 300 were bitten by a pig
  • 10,000 were “accidentally” bitten by another person
  • 1,700 were struck by a cow
  • 8,700 were kicked by another person

And 600 were recorded as “contact with sword or dagger,"
