Question: Transfer between the Psychiatric Unit and Acute Care Unit

A patient is admitted to the psychiatric unit of an acute care facility on day 1 and then transferred into an acute care unit on two days later for medical treatment. On the next day, the patient is sent back to the psychiatric unit and discharged home on two days later.

Despite the transfer between the psychiatric unit and the acute care unit, please confirm that this patient would be abstracted only once for HBIPS purposes, using the first date as Admit Date and the final date (six days later) as Discharge Date.


Yes, this record would be abstracted only once. HBIPS-1 would be abstracted during the first stay in the psych unit and HBIPS-4,5,6 & 7 would be abstracted during the final stay in the psych unit. Any restraint and seclusion events would be reported for both stays in the psych unit.
