This is the standard hospital code derived by the death system using a reference table from the RG hospital code and mapping over to the Queensland Health corporate facility numbers stored in Queensland Health general reference tables.  Stored as a numeric character length of three in the RG tables and maps to a five digit number in the QH facility table.
Comment
Update: The RBDM now supplies the Corporate Reference Data System (CRDS) five digit facility code - see Facility-facility code data element.
