Elective Admission

Elective Admission provides further guidance for classifying an admission to hospital via an ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST.

An Elective Admission is one that has been arranged in advance. It is not an emergency admission, a maternity admission or a transfer from a Hospital Bed in another Health Care Provider. The period that the PATIENT has to wait for admission depends on the demand on hospital resources and the facilities available to meet this demand.
