  • Understanding admission & separation

    An admission is a process whereby the hospital accepts responsibility for the patient's care or treatment.  Admission follows a clinical decision based upon specified criteria that a patient requires same-day or overnight (multi-day) care or treatment.  A separation is defined as 'the process by which an episode of care for an admitted patient ceases'.  Separations include instances whereby a patient's episode is closed and a new episode opened for a change in the type of care provided; for example, from acute to sub-acute care.
