Guide for use:

If a resident is formally discharged (Episode of residential care—episode end mode, code N, code 4) while on leave from a residential mental health care service, the end date of the episode should be the date that leave commenced. For example, if a resident goes on leave on 9 July and is formally discharged without returning on 18 July, the end date of the episode is 9 July.

If a resident fails to return from leave (Episode of residential care—episode end mode, code N, code 3), then the residential stay ends on the date that leave commenced.
