Description

An indication of whether the PATIENT  has been admitted or transferred to a CONSULTANT in one of the psychiatric specialties within a Hospital Provider Spell.

PSYCHIATRIC PATIENT STATUS  should be recorded against the first CONSULTANT episode in one of the psychiatric specialties but not for subsequent psychiatric consultant episodes or for any non-psychiatric episodes.

This information is used to indicate the turnover period within the SERVICE and identify, where possible, all first time psychiatric admissions and re-admissions.

Where a PATIENT has a history of admissions to several Hospital Providers, then priority between National Codes 1 and 2 should be given to the current Hospital Provider, and National Code 1 selected, irrespective of whether or not the last admission was to the same Hospital Provider.
