Geographic Coverage does not include the territories, as there are no inpatient rehabilitation facilities in Yukon, the Northwest Territories or Nunavut.
The NRS frame does not currently contain all inpatient rehabilitation units/facilities in all provinces and territories. Coverage is less than 100% in all jurisdictions except Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, Ontario and Saskatchewan.
Due to the option of coding Date Ready for Admission as "unknown," the number of episodes included in this calculation may be smaller than the overall number of clients receiving inpatient rehabilitation at these sites.
This indicator does not provide specific reasons for delays in admission to rehabilitation. Facilities wishing to track this indicator more closely may consider independently tracking specific reasons for delays in the admission process.
The indicator includes patients who waited 0 days for admission (that is, Date Ready for Admission = Admission Date). The average number of days waiting for admission would be significantly higher if this indicator included only those patients waiting 1 or more days.
