LOS (antenatal) = baby's date of birth - mother's admission date
Antenatal LOS is calculated by subtracting the mother's admission date from the baby's date of birth. It includes contract days and leave days.
If the mother's admission date and the baby's date of birth are on the same date, count the LOS as 1 day.
Antenatal length of stay refers only to the admission associated with the birth.
Antenatal LOS relates only to the episode of admitted patient care associated with the birth.
In a multiple pregnancy, the date of birth of the first baby born should be used to calculate the mother's antenatal LOS.
To calculate the total LOS, use the data element - Episode of admitted patient care - length of stay (including leave days) total.
