I am giving the definition of the “b” part first so that the “a” makes more sense.
AB2b Facility Number Admitted From
Note that there are 11 Admitted From types and they are numbered 00 to 10
1) Item 10 Private Home (No Home Care)
If AB2a (Admitted From Facility/Level of Care) is coded 10 (private home-no home care), then AB2b must be coded with spaces.
2) Items 00, 08 and 09 – Ambulatory Care, Home Care, and Residential Care (Board and Care service)
AB2a is coded 00 (ambulatory Health Service), 08 (home care service) or 09 (residential care service .board and care),
AB2b can be coded with a valid provincial/territory facility number if available.
3) All others 01 to 07
For all other AB2a codes (01-07, inclusive), AB2b must be coded with a valid provincial/territory facility number.
NOTES the province numbers are in the CIHI Manual for example New Brunswick has the number 3 and ZZZZ means Unknown Facility Number thus if unknow but in New Brunswick enter 3ZZZZ
AB2a Type of Facility Admitted from or Level of Care Admitted from
AB2 - This item facilitates care planning by offering clues to where to look for care needs.
• For example, if the resident was admitted from the hospital, focus might be on an acute condition such as hip surgery, and on monitoring for delirium.
• If the resident was admitted from home, the focus might be on the resident’s sense of loss associated with giving up home and independence.
