Guide for Use
The rules for calculating the number of hospital-in-the-home days are outlined below:
- The number of hospital-in-the-home days is calculated with reference to the date of admission, date of separation, leave days and any date(s) of change between hospital and home accommodation;
- The date of admission is counted if the patient was at home at the end of the day;
- The date of change between hospital and home accommodation is counted if the patient was at home at the end of the day;
- The date of separation is not counted, even if the patient was at home at the end of the day;
- The normal rules for calculation of patient days apply, for example in relation to leave and same-day patients.
