Injury Codification Department
Welcome to your first day at the Grand Hunt hospital! As an assistant trainee intern in the Injury Codification Department, you'll have the critical (haha get it?) job of interviewing the patients to understand how they were injured, and determine the proper code to enter on the insurance forms. Make sure your conclusions add up. Good luck, and remember: here in the ICD we use the 10th revision of the reference work to find the right data.
Note to solvers: certain words are underlined to be helpful, but the puzzle is solvable without the underlines.

Patient #5: "It was beautiful up there - did you know the stars don’t actually twinkle? Then all of a sudden, BANG - Yuri steered right into our craft! He's more of a 'cause mo` pain’ if you get my drift.”

Patient #6: "I'm pretty good with these down the mountain, so how hard could it be on the lake? We get up to a good speed, and I look down, and they're burning! How could that possibly happen? I guess I jumped off a little too fast and couldn’t make it back to the surface. (By the way, if you write this down, they are hyphenated.)"
