LODGING END TIME

The time that the responsibility for nursing care is transferred from an Accident and Emergency Attendance to a WARD thus ending the period as a LODGED PATIENT. This will be the same as ACTIVITY TIME of type 'A and E DEPARTURE TIME' if the PATIENT was lodged as a result of an Accident and Emergency Attendance.

The transfer of responsibility may occur when the PATIENT is received into a Hospital Bed in an appropriate WARD, an OPERATING THEATRE or another setting for immediate treatment (e.g. an X-ray Department) before being received into a Hospital Bed in an appropriate WARD.

A Hospital Bed in an Accident and Emergency observation and assessment WARD may be a transfer of responsibility but a trolley, bed or chair in a corridor would not.
