Guidelines for the use of "awaiting" codes
How much of a delay is required before we code "awaiting"?
Code awaiting if Dispo DtTm is not on the same calendar day as the Transfer Ready date and time. We realize this is different from Transfer Delay. For example, if patient was transfer ready on Tuesday, but left on Wednesday or thereafter, use one of the codes in Category:Awaiting/delayed transfer.
status changes and is no longer awaiting
If the transfer is cancelled do NOT remove the "awaiting" code.
status changes and is awaiting different destination
If during the wait to leave, the location to which the planned transfer changes, then add the additional Awaiting code, thus can have >1 Awaiting code in this situation.
Patient arrives on unit already awaiting care
For patients who arrive "transfer ready" (usually to a low acuity ward), use one of the "awaiting" codes as primary if there are no active medical problems. If the patient is still actively being treated for something, make that diagnosis primary and the "awaiting" code a lower priority.
awaiting ambiguous locations
Possible reasons for delay that we can actually code
- Palliative care
- Respite care
- Problem related to unspecified psychosocial circumstances
- Medical Assistance In Dying
