Patient had a fall and suffered traumatic injuries while an inpatient at a Psychiatric facility. Patient then transferred to us for management of those injuries. Is this considered an injury that occurs after hospital admission and to be considered a complication, not to be reported? Or should this patient be captured as PTOS?

If the patient is in an acute care hospital, and falls, that record won’t meet inclusion criteria. In other locations such as a SNF, residential care, or a psychiatric center that is not an acute care hospital, those do qualify for inclusion.
