Guide for use:

The rules for calculating the number of qualified newborn days are outlined below. The number of qualified days is calculated with reference to the Episode of admitted patient care—admission date, DDMMYYYY, Episode of admitted patient care—separation date, DDMMYYYYand any Episode of admitted patient care (newborn)—date of change to qualification status, DDMMYYYY:

  • the date of admission is counted if the patient was qualified at the end of the day
  • the date of change to qualification status is counted if the patient was qualified at the end of the day
  • the date of separation is not counted, even if the patient was qualified on that day
  • the normal rules for calculation of patient days apply, for example in relation to leave and same day patients

The length of stay for a newborn episode of care is equal to the sum of the qualified and unqualified days.
