    • Patient received abortifacient/feticide discharged home. Patient later re-admitted to deliver a fetus (irrespective of gestational age or outcome of termination i.e. liveborn/stillborn). Documented as a delivery procedure.
    • Patient received abortifacient/feticide and delivered a fetus in the same episode of care (irrespective of gestational age or outcome of termination i.e. liveborn/stillborn). Documented as a delivery procedure.
