The Presenting Complaint List (PCL) was developed by the Canadian Emergency Department Information System (CEDIS) Working Group. It includes common symptoms, complaints, problems or reasons for seeking medical care. The Canadian Emergency Department Diagnoses Shortlist (CED-DxS) includes more than 800 diagnoses in common terms, which are mapped to ICD-10-CA codes.
This report introduces the work undertaken to develop a new measure of hospital harm that is linked to evidence-informed practices.
These Quick Stats contain data on injury and trauma visits in the emergency department (ED) and hospitalizations in acute care hospitals. It does not distinguish between patients who were transferred from one facility to another or readmitted. Therefore, unless otherwise identified, data provided represents the number of ED visits and hospitalizations, not the number of patients.
