Admitted patients:

Hospitals maintain waiting lists which may include patients awaiting hospital care other than elective surgery - for example, dental surgery and oncology treatments.

This metadata item is necessary to distinguish patients awaiting elective surgery from those awaiting other types of elective hospital care. The waiting period for patients awaiting transplant or obstetric procedures is largely independent of system resource factors.
