A statement of the operational planning intent for a WARD, including intended Hospital Bed numbers and times available, the TREATMENT FUNCTION the Hospital Beds are planned to be assigned to, and the WARD INTENDED CLINICAL CARE INTENSITY.
Hospital Bed availability, in the above, is expressed as the total number of Hospital Beds intended to be available for the use of PATIENTS receiving CONSULTANT Care, NURSE Care or MIDWIFE Care. This should reflect the number of places available for PATIENT care rather than just a count of physical devices that may be used as a Hospital Bed.
