A Hospital Site is an ORGANISATION SITE.

A Hospital Site is an ORGANISATION SITE that is a hospital.

A Hospital Site should contain at least one  Hospital Bed routinely used by PATIENTS overnight. However, a dental hospital which does not have Hospital Beds routinely used by PATIENTS overnight may be classified as a Hospital Site if it includes at least one Hospital Bed routinely used by PATIENTS by day. A hospital is an establishment for which the main purpose is to provide medical or psychiatric treatment for illness or mental disorder or Palliative Care. PATIENTS may have a Hospital Stay at a Hospital Site, as a result of one or more ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST ENTRIES.

A hospital which provides high security psychiatric services in high security accommodation for PATIENTS liable to be detained in hospital under provisions of the Mental Health Act 1983, who require treatment under conditions of special security on account of their dangerous, violent or criminal propensities, must be part of an NHS Trust approved by the Secretary of State for the purpose of providing such services.

Any establishment in which treatment or nursing (or both) are provided for PERSONS liable to be detained under the Mental Health Act 1983 is a Hospital Site.

The Hospital Site may or may not be classed as an NHS site.
