2 Observation/Convalescent Beds – Observation/assessment may be provided during clinic hours as long as there is an onsite physician and RN support, after which the attending physician must arrange for the patient to be transferred, discharged or admitted under an alternate classification (ie: convalescent or palliative). The convalescent or palliative care patients must be “stable”, meaning there is not anticipated variation in care needs on a day to day basis.
