Non-admitted patient emergency department care NMDS
Identifying and definitional attributes
|Metadata item type:||Data Set Specification|
|DSS type:||National Minimum Data Set (NMDS)|
This metadata set is nationally mandated for collection and reporting.
The scope of this National Minimum Data Set (NMDS) is non-admitted patients registered for care in emergency departments in selected public hospitals that are classified as either Peer Group A or B in the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare's Australian Hospital Statistics publication from the preceding financial year.
Care provided to patients who are being treated in an emergency department site as an admitted patient (e.g. in an observation unit, short-stay unit, 'emergency department ward' or awaiting a bed in an admitted patient ward of the hospital) are excluded from the emergency department care NMDS since the recording of the care provided to these patients is part of the scope of the Admitted patient care NMDS.
