The Patient Type on your registry page can take one of two values:

M-Medical Type

Patient who is admitted under the care of a Medical Service attending physician

S-Surgical Type

  • admitted from the OR but is under the care of the Medicine Service Attending Physician.
  • admitted from the RR and is under the care of the Medicine Service Attending Physician.

NOTE: if there is a surgical patient on an medicine ward bed that is under a Surgical Service care, we exclude from the database. This is not a medicine service care patient.

Removal of field

The discussion at task meeting in past was to wait until we migrate to ICU10 DX code then Julie and Garland can decide on pt type category.
