Department in Visit_Occurrence table

(Micheal ) #1

I would like to ask if the ‘department field’ which person has visited could be in visit table.
As NS(NeuroSurgery), GS(General Surgery), PD(PeDiatrics), OS(OrthoSurgery), PS(Plastic Surgery)…etc, I carefully suggest them in Visit table.

“Departments” are in the CARE_SITE table which has a FK to the VISIT_OCCURRENCE table.

There is no any ‘Department’ in the CARE_SITE table.
The only IP, OP facilities are there.

For more detailed information what happens inside a visit please use VISIT_DETAIL.

Thank you @Christian_Reich
