Draft Direct Admission to a Hospital Inpatient Unit Policy Guideline Consultation

23 May 2018

Comment was provided on theDraft Direct Admission to a Hospital Inpatient Unit Policy Guideline.


The AMA(SA) approves in principle of direct admission where this can be achieved in a safe and efficient manner without delays in necessary treatment or any unintended impact on the inpatients at the time of the transfer/admission. Such impact would result from a diversion of necessary medical and nursing resources to the incoming patient at a time other inpatient needs are more critical.
