ELECTIVE ADMISSION TYPE

The type of an ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST ENTRY.

National Codes:

11Waiting list admission
A PATIENT admitted electively from a WAITING LIST having been given no date of admission at a time a DECISION TO ADMIT was made
12Booked admission
A PATIENT admitted having been given a date at the time the DECISION TO ADMIT was made, determined mainly on the grounds of resource availability
13Planned admission
A PATIENT admitted, having been given a date or approximate date at the time that the DECISION TO ADMIT was made. This is usually part of a planned sequence of clinical care determined mainly on clinical criteria (eg check cystoscopy)

Note that regular day and night admissions should be counted as planned after the first admission, with PATIENT placed on the ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST between admissions. The date of the DECISION TO ADMIT for regular day and night admissions is the date when arrangements were made for the next admission. It is often the date when the PATIENT was last discharged from hospital.
