Scenario- a patient falls transfer to OSH from scene noted to have SDH then transferred to our hospital and is transitioned to CMO in ED and d/c to hospice. Would this be a PTOS patient?

Since this patient is a transfer in, you will include this patient as PTOS. A patient that meets the PTOS inclusion criteria prior to the order for hospice care, or the equivalent, should be captured as PTOS. If the patient would have come directly to your facility, they would have been excluded.
