ICU Definition

For ICU, a readmission is a patient where

  • (admit date/time) - (most recent ICU discharge date/time to ward or home) <= 48 hours
  • that said 72 before... was it related to 72hr Readmission Rate to ICU? If so I will change the name and wiki links but we need to also review that content is right.
  • will it be "...first ICU Service Start DtTm" instead of admit date/time going forward?
  • SMW
