ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST ENTRY

An entry on an ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST denoting a PATIENT for whom the DECISION TO ADMIT has been made.

Being placed on the ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST will result in an ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST ENTRY. When the ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST ENTRY is first recorded, the ORIGINAL DECIDED TO ADMIT DATE should be recorded as the same as the DECIDED TO ADMIT DATE of the first DECISION TO ADMIT.

It is possible for a PATIENT to have more than one ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST ENTRY, either for a different condition or for the same condition where two or more admissions are required.

Only one ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST ENTRY should be made in the event of the intention to perform two or more procedures during one admission.

To monitor key targets it is necessary for the Health Care Provider responsible for the ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST, to record the date of any previous OFFERS OF ADMISSION for the same condition, which was made by a previous Health Care Provider and then cancelled by them on the day of or after admission for non-medical reasons.

The ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST ENTRY is removed from the WAITING LIST when the PATIENT is admitted or removed for other specified reasons. ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST REMOVAL REASON records the method of removal from the list and ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST REMOVAL DATE records the removal date.

Once removed from the ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST, the PATIENT ceases to be waiting for admission and all associated OFFERS OF ADMISSION become inactive.

Note: An ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST ENTRY must be related to a DECISION TO ADMIT.
