day bed unit

day bed unit

A ward or part thereof specifically organised to manage day cases. Day bed unit beds are not included in the bed complement or staffed for overnight stay; inpatient ward beds used for day cases are included in the bed complement, unless the beds are formally set aside for day-case care, in which case they should be removed from the bed complement and regarded as a day bed unit.
