The data in this field will be retained in Centralized data.mdb's L_Log table since it doesn't follow the same pattern as the new entry. The field no longer exists in CCMDB data.mdb.

See Transfer Ready DtTm tmp entry for what this field is about, or see the history of this page for how it has been used at different times before moving to the new field.

Collection Instruction

Entering a Transfer Ready DtTm

Follow the instructions in Transfer Ready DtTm tmp entry.

Before 2020-10-15   

For each patient,

  • enter the first date/time of intent to transfer to lower level in the Level of care hierarchy is documented into the Transfer Ready Date and Time Field; see #status changing back and forth
  • if not available because the patient was clearly not transfer ready, leave the date/time empty and enter "not transfer ready" into the "TR info status field"
  • if not available but the patient probably was transfer ready and it just wasn't documented, leave the date/time empty and enter "not available" into the "TR info status field"

This entry is about the time of an intent, nothing to do with what actually happened to the patient after.

Similar to the old Transfer Ready date and time, but we eliminated special cases and differences between medicine and critical care. Going forward the entry will be collected even if pt dies or goes to ER etc. It's the intent that counts, not what ended up happening. Resp. field names L_Log.R_TRDate and L_Log.R_TRTime
