This case concerns only the Swedish version. It is actually a continuation of Case #533 ’Problems with "missing values" in the NordDRG system’ but since that case is closed and also contains a lot of other things we decided to make a new case.
DRG Z92N 'Saknad eller negativ vårdtid' was introduced in the PL-version for 2019 but the rule does not work as we thought. Only deceased cases are grouped to DRG Z92N. It is possible to make the rule work but it is tedious and not worth it because we have only a few cases per year with missing or negative LOS. Therefore we have decided to delete DRG Z92N and that shall be done already in the PR version for 2019.
