Refusal of Patient

Patient admission may not be refused without thorough bedside review and certainly not prior to discussion with the admissions Intensive Care Specialist.


No patient should be declined admission without discussion with the Admissions Intensive Care Specialist.


Where a patient is reviewed but not admitted to Intensive Care, the pertinent findings and reason for refusal must be clearly documented in the notes and the name of the Admissions Specialist documented, following discussion with the Intensive Care Specialist.‚Äč
