Colonoscopy prep

What dx code would you use for poor colonoscopy prep? Patient had a very poor prep for the colonoscopy and the procedure had to be aborted. Thanks

I don't use specific diagnosis for this. I just use the diagnosis for the reason the procedure was performed.

There isn't a dx for poor prep; what I usually do is type "poor prep" in box 19 on the HCFA 1500 form and use the dx code for the reason of the colonoscopy (i.e. Screening). I hope this helps!
