|National Codes:||See ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST REMOVAL REASON|
ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST REMOVAL REASON CODE is the same as attribute ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST REMOVAL REASON.
PATIENTS are taken off the ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST once they are admitted to hospital. If treatment is then deferred because of lack of facilities or for medical reasons - the PATIENT may have a cold or unacceptably high blood pressure - the PATIENT is discharged with the ADMISSION OFFER OUTCOME recorded as: 'Patient admitted - treatment deferred'. A new DECISION TO ADMIT and a new ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST ENTRY will then be made for the PATIENT. Note that the ORIGINAL DECIDED TO ADMIT DATE must still be used to calculate the start of the PATIENT's waiting time calculation.
