Neonatal Critical Care Spell

A Neonatal Critical Care Spell is a Care Spell, which is an ACTIVITY GROUP.

A Neonatal Critical Care Spell starts when a Neonate receives Neonatal Critical Care in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, transitional care setting or other non-standard neonatal critical care setting.

A Neonatal Critical Care Spell ends when the PATIENT is discharged (or dies) from the same or any Health Care Provider of neonatal critical care. A Neonatal Critical Care Spell continues if the PATIENT transfers between Neonatal Critical Care Health Care Providers.

Therefore each Neonatal Critical Care Spell comprises one or more sequential CRITICAL CARE PERIODS delivered by any Health Care Provider.
