Notes:
ADMISSION OFFER OUTCOME CODE is the same as attribute ADMISSION OFFER OUTCOME.

PATIENTS are taken off the ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST once they are admitted into hospital.

If treatment is then deferred because of lack of facilities, or for medical reasons, e.g. the PATIENT may have a cold or unacceptably high blood pressure, the PATIENT is discharged with the ADMISSION OFFER OUTCOME CODE recorded as 'Patient admitted - treatment deferred'. A new DECISION TO ADMIT and a new ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST ENTRY will then be made for the PATIENT.

Note that the ORIGINAL DECIDED TO ADMIT DATE will still be used for the PATIENT's waiting time calculation. However, if the PATIENT fails to arrive or if the Admission is cancelled by, or on behalf of, the PATIENT then the waiting time is re-set from the missed admission date.

ADMISSION OFFER OUTCOME CODE replaces ADMISSION OFFER OUTCOME and should be used for all new and developing data sets and for XML messages.
