Time is record using a 24 hour clock, from 0000 (denoting midnight) to 2359.
Hospital Based Corporate Information System (HBCIS):
Currently HBCIS will not accept 0000 as midnight. A system parameter setting at each site dictates if 2400 can be a valid entry. If an actual event occurs at midnight and the parameter is set to 'Y' then record 2400. If an actual event occurs at midnight and the parameter is set to 'N' record 2359.
Public hospitals that do not use an electronic patient management system will need to complete a Motor and Work Injury Interview Questionnaire and provide this information to the facility that records their data.
