Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:||Any return to seclusion after an initial intervention has ceased is recorded as a new event. The seclusion period is not broken when the consumer leaves the seclusion room to attend to personal hygiene or receive medication, food or fluids and is considered a continuous seclusion event.|
Reporting of this data element enables reporting of the nationally agreed seclusion key performance indicator Rate of seclusion. The rate of seclusion is calculated as the total number of seclusion events divided by the total accrued number of mental health care days provided by the admitted patient care service during the reference period, multiplied by 1,000.
