I am currently working on a patient that gets admitted to OSH for medical reasons.  Two days later while doing therapy falls from chair and dx with a fx from the fall.  Patient is then transferred to our facility for treatment 3 days after injury at OSH.  For scene provider would I want to choose walk-in as patient was in facility at time of injury?  For admission date would it be the date and time of injury, anything done prior to injury would be voided?

We recommend using walk-in as the scene provider and recording the time of injury as the admission date/time. This allows for abstraction to really begin with the injury/fall and not with their initial admission at the referring facility.
