It is possible for a PATIENT to have more than one ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST ENTRY, either for a different condition or for the same condition where two or more admissions are required.
Only one ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST ENTRY should be made in the event of the intention to perform two or more procedures during one admission.
To monitor key targets it is necessary for the HEALTH CARE PROVIDER responsible for the ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST, to record the date of any previous OFFER OF ADMISSION for the same condition, which was made by a previous HEALTH CARE PROVIDER and then cancelled by them on the day of or after admission for non-medical reasons.
Note: An ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST ENTRY must be related to a DECISION TO ADMIT.
