Collection and usage attributes

Comments:Help on this term

This treatment and/or care provided to a patient prior to separation occurs over a period of time and can occur in hospital and/or in the person's home (for hospital-in-the-home patients).

While this concept is also applicable to non-admitted patient care and welfare services, different terminology to 'separation' is often used in these other care settings.
