LENGTH OF STAY ADJUSTMENT

The total number of days within a Consultant Episode (Hospital Provider) that a discrete period of ACTIVITY such as Rehabilitation or Specialist Palliative Care occurred, which requires an adjustment to the total length of stay for National Tariff Payment System purposes. 

The LENGTH OF STAY ADJUSTMENT should be calculated using the National Tariff Payment System rules (i.e. count of midnights). The LENGTH OF STAY ADJUSTMENT REASON should also be recorded.

Where several discrete periods of applicable activity for the same LENGTH OF STAY ADJUSTMENT REASON occur within one Consultant Episode (Hospital Provider), the number of days under the same LENGTH OF STAY ADJUSTMENT REASON should be totalled and reported in a single LENGTH OF STAY ADJUSTMENT.
