Understanding Category 1 elective surgery

Elective surgery is surgery that, in the opinion of the treating clinician, is necessary and admission for which can be delayed for at least twenty-four hours.

For urgent (Category 1) patients, admission within 30 days is desirable for a condition that has the potential to deteriorate quickly to the point that it might become an emergency.
