Data Collection Instructions

This is a project that tracks (tags) any ICU patients' that technically would have been under the care of one ICU but ended up under the care of another. This is a case of both borrowed bed and service.

Use tmp fields:

  • Project: ICUotherService
  • Item:
    • for STB
      • ACCU under MICU service
      • ACCU under CICU service
      • MICU under CICU service
    • for HSC
      • SICU under MICU
      • MICU under SICU
  • start_dt: not needed
  • start_tm: not needed
  • Dispo Tab

If pt moves out from STB MICU or STB CICU to STB ACCU, create a new profile.


The entry is rarely used these days, so we discussed if we should continue collecting it at all. Task discussion led to decision to keep collecting this.

Start/End Dates

  • Start: April 5, 2018
  • End: there is no planned end date - until we hear from collector and STB that this has changed.

Change in project scope

Until 2020-03 this type of ICU overflow did not happen at HSC, so this project was only for STB. With COVID-19 we have started to see this in HSC, so the project was extended there.

Because STB ACCU exceeds it's bed capacity patients physically overflow into the STB CICU or STB MICU. Starting Apr 2 2018 these pts are no longer under ACCU Cardiology Service.

Initially, ACCU's directors/manager wanted to track this information as they are working towards obtaining funding for increase beds.
