psych unit in acute care hospital


If a resident had a voluntary psych admission to a dedicated geri psych unit of our local acute care hospital, what would you code A1800 - "entered from" when he returned?

Acute care hospital or psychiatric hospital?

Thank you!

Acute hospital. A psych hospital is a stand alone facility.
