Data element attributes

Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:

The intention of the ‘Organisation overhead setting’ category is to separately identify staff not directly involved in the delivery of patient care services in the Admitted patient, Residential or Ambulatory mental health care service settings, or in the operations of those settings. Note that this does not imply that these roles do not have an impact on service delivery.

Staff employed to deliver patient care services should be reported in the Admitted patient (code 1), Residential (code 2) or Ambulatory (code 3) mental health care settings, as appropriate. Staff employed in the administration of a particular service would also be reported against the appropriate service setting. For example, administrative and domestic staff specifically attached to an admitted patient unit would be reported at the Admitted patient care service setting.

Organisational staff not directly involved in the delivery of patient care services should be reported in the Organisational overhead setting (code 4). For example, a chief operating officer not directly providing patient care, nor involved in the operation of services in a specific service setting, would be reported in the Organisational overhead setting.

Some staff may require apportioning across a number of service settings. For example, a clinical director, with oversight of all services provided by the organisation, would be apportioned across the service settings based on the level of involvement with each of these services.

This data element permits staffing data related to service settings to be identified and reported separately.

Regional and jurisdictional level staff are excluded from full-time equivalent staff data for the MHE NMDS.
