PSYCHIATRIC PATIENT STATUS

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.

National Codes:

0No known previous Hospital Provider Spells with a Consultant Episode (Hospital Provider) within a psychiatric speciality within any Health Care Provider
1One or more previous Hospital Provider Spells involving a Consultant Episode (Hospital Provider) within a psychiatric specialty with this Health Care Provider
2One or more previous Hospital Provider Spells involving a Consultant Episode (Hospital Provider) within a psychiatric specialty with another Health Care Provider, but none with this Health Care Provider
8Not applicable: the PATIENT is not receiving admitted patient care under a CONSULTANT in a psychiatric specialty
9Not known: the PATIENT is receiving admitted patient care under a CONSULTANT in a psychiatric specialty, but the information is not available. This constitutes a validation error
