- Acute Care Cardiology Service (ACCU) Patients that are physically located in the STB MICU but are looked after by the Cardiology Service physician will be collected and entered into the database with a Site_location as: STB_ACCU.
overflow with physician service ownership assigned to another ICU
Patients who should have been in ACCU and under Cardiology Service but who are in other ICU under other ICU service physician.
The Statistician who uses SAS programs to link continuous admissions, will update her SAS program so that an admission FROM Site_Loc, STB_MICU TO Site_Loc, STB_MICU, will not be flagged as an error. As of July 7, 2016, with the new change from CCU Service Tracking to ACCU borrow, the linking for continuous admission can now use the Site_Loc, STB_ACCU in either admission FROM or TO just like the other Site_loc and will not be flagged as an error.
Legacy: Patients located on MISI
As of October 1, 2010 CCU collectors do not collect data on CCU (Cardiology) pts that are located in MICU or ICCS. Instead these pts are put as MICU or CICU location with cardiac type. The MICU or CICU collector is responsible for these patient profiles. If the pt care is transferred to the MICU attending, the profile will be restarted and it will be a medical type, instead of cardiac type. . Must remember to start a new tiss if the patient is transferred to the MICU physician's care. The first profile is logged out to MICU and the new profile is logged into MICU even though in both cases the location is MICU. This scenario happens rarely as usually Cardiology service looks after their patients while they are in MICU or CICU.
