Guide for use:Help on this term

The value of the Emergency service stay—episode end status, code N should guide the selection of the value to be recorded as the end time of an emergency 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 service), then record the time the patient's emergency service clinical care is completed.
  • If the service episode is completed without the patient being admitted, then record the time the patient's emergency service 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 service clinical care is completed.
  • If the patient did not wait, then record the time the patient leaves the emergency service or was first noticed as having left.
  • If the patient left at their own risk, then record the time the patient leaves the emergency service or was first noticed as having left.
  • If the patient died in the emergency service 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 service without being attended by a health-care professional, then record the time the patient leaves the emergency service.
