Scraping of Fetus.
I would like to find out if in a case that a miscarriage takes place, does it say on the hospital bills that it in fact was a miscarriage. And if not, what it does in fact say. And my last question would be on how a miscarriage are performed, do they operate on a person and how long do you have to stay in hospital for. The fetus are 8 weeks old.

There are codes for medical procedures, so it will probably say Evacuation of the uterus or D&C.
The procedure is done by suctioning or scraping the products out of the uterus. You should be able to go home the same day.
