|National Codes:||See INTENDED MANAGEMENT|
|Default Codes:||8 - Not applicable|
|9 - INTENDED MANAGEMENT not known|
INTENDED MANAGEMENT CODE is the same as attribute INTENDED MANAGEMENT.
Occasionally the PATIENT's treatment does not go exactly to plan. For example, a PATIENT admitted as a day case may develop complications and have to be kept in overnight. Therefore another data item, PATIENT CLASSIFICATION, is used to describe what actually happens to the PATIENT. In this example, the PATIENT CLASSIFICATION would be 'Ordinary admission' and not 'Day case admission'.
Note: the Default Code description for 9 - Not known has been updated. The Data Set specifications that contain this item will be updated in the next version of the Information Standard where it is not already correct.
This data element is also known by these names:
