Guide for use:Help on this termThe value of the episode end status should guide the selection of the value to be recorded as the end time of a non-admitted patient emergency department service episode as follows:
  • If the patient is subsequently admitted to this hospital (including those who are admitted and subsequently die before leaving the emergency department), then record the time the patient's emergency department non-admitted clinical care is completed.
  • If the service episode is completed without the patient being admitted, then record the time the patient's emergency department non-admitted clinical care is completed.
  • If the service episode is completed and the patient is referred to another hospital for admission, then record the time the patient's emergency department non-admitted clinical care is completed.
  • If the patient did not wait, then record the time the patient leaves the emergency department or was first noticed as having left.
  • If the patient left at their own risk, then record the time the patient leaves the emergency department or was first noticed as having left.
  • If the patient died in the emergency department as a non-admitted patient, then record the time the patient was certified dead.
  • If the patient was dead on arrival, then record the time the patient was certified dead.
  • If the patient was registered, advised of another health care service, and left the emergency department without being attended by a health care professional, then record the time the patient leaves the emergency department.
