Guide for use:

The value of the episode end status should guide the selection of the value to be recorded as the end time of a non-admitted patient emergency department service episode as follows:

  • If the patient is subsequently admitted to this hospital, then record the time the patient's emergency department non-admitted clinical care is completed.
  • If the service episode is completed without the patient being admitted, then record the time the patient's emergency department non-admitted clinical care is completed.
  • If the service episode is completed and the patient is referred to another hospital for admission, then record the time the patient's emergency department non-admitted clinical care is completed.
  • If the patient did not wait, then record the time the patient leaves the emergency department or was first noticed as having left.
  • If the patient left at their own risk, then record the time the patient leaves the emergency department or was first noticed as having left.
  • If the patient died in the emergency department as a non-admitted patient, then record the time the patient was certified dead.
  • If the patient was dead on arrival, then record the time the patient was certified dead.
