This page explains which locations at HSC we consider as Boarding Locs as part of the HSC General Collection Guide. See also: Identifying patients in boarding locations.
Location of HSC medicine contingency beds
Medicine Overflow HSC_B5
- short term 6 beds internal medicine overflow at HSC
- start date: Jan 1, 2018
- stop date: Stopped sometime prior to spring of 2019??
- We are collecting data on medicine service patients admitted to B5 contingency beds. If they are coming in under A, D or H physician service, they remain under our collection process regardless if they non teaching or teaching. Until such time they are noted to no longer be under any medicine service, they will then be “discharged” from medicine data collection.
- As of Jan 8 these patient are admitted under Dr. T Friesen and Dr. Ken VanAmeyde. The service affiliation A,D or H, can stay as is i.e. they stay under the same service they were admitted to on day 1 of their hospital stay.
- 2018_Aug_1: Dr Dowhanik /Dr. Vanymede are emptying the B5 medicine beds and will not admit into them unless "emergency/ absolute need" for medicine overflow patient movement. The B5 bed overflow option will be "formally closed" within 6 months.-Llemoine 09:25, 2018 August 1 (CDT)
- Did that ever happen? If so, can we clean this section out of here if it's no longer applicable? Ttenbergen 21:36, 2020 October 8 (CDT)

Opening and closing of medicine contingency beds opened at HSC
When HSC medicine wards are over census, during intermittent periods of high occupancy, contingency bed are then opened. I think it is the bed doctor who is in charge of opening and closing them but I am not 100% sure.--CMarks 14:11, 17 January 2011 (CST)
- These beds are in use for D4 patients as there is construction on that ward.--CMarks 13:35, 2015 July 8 (CDT)

LEGACY HSC MED Collection instructions for Contingency beds
- Location: is the Physician Service admitted to: A, D or H. (Example: HSC_H4, HSC_A4, HSC_D4, HSC_D5, HSC_B3)
- When patients moves TO: A4,H4,B3,D4 or D5 we do not need to create a new profile for them, just follow them as continuous from medicine ward of origin.
- Record in the Tmp the MOVE date and time to be the same as admission date and time and put:
- move TO location H7T for teaching (rare if ever) or
- move TO location H7N for non teaching, we can put H4 or H733 to identify which area the patients are actually moved to by putting it in the spot we usually write park in er(tmp file)
- H7N or H7T mean contingency bed either on H4 or in CCU or 733 side of H7
- a new profile is only created if a patient is discharged to another Medicine Service Care.
- Generally, if a patient moves from H7NT (where they are cared for by the staff man) to a "teaching "service, then they are moved to HSC HOBS which requires a new profile or back down to their respective ward.--CMarks 08:29, 11 January 2011 (CST)
- non teaching: If we find oncology, rehab or any other services that don't belong to medicine service physician we do not collect this for non-teaching patients.
