Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:Help on this term

Includes patients who do not wait for treatment once registered or triaged, and those who are dead on arrival.

Both a non-admitted patient emergency department service episode and an admitted patient episode of care should be recorded for patients who subsequently undergo a formal admission. The end of the non-admitted patient emergency department service episode should indicate the commencement of the admitted episode of care, if applicable.

A non-admitted patient emergency department service episode ends when either the patient is admitted or, if the patient is not to be admitted, when the patient's emergency department non-admitted clinical care is recorded as completed, or when they are recorded as having left at their own risk.
