Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:|
A non-admitted patient emergency department service episode ends when either the patient is admitted or, if the patient is not to be admitted, when the patient is recorded as ready to leave the emergency department or when they are recorded as having left at their own risk.
For patients who subsequently undergo a formal admission an admitted patient episode of care should be recorded. The end of the non-admitted patient emergency department service episode should indicate the commencement of the admitted episode of care.
