Can you tell my mom used to work for Hospice?

When I heard that Lee Jong-wook, esteemed head of the WHO, had died today of a blood clot, I couldn't help but wonder what his ICD code was. It's morbid, but oddly appropriate.

(If you're scratching your head right now, the ICD is a list maintained by the World Health Organization to classify every conceivable disease and/or cause of death. And if you were wondering, Jong-wook died of D68.9, or "coagulation defect, unspecified".)
