The patient has a clearly identified problem, with minimal other complicating factors.
The patient has a clearly defined problem but there may be a small
number of additional factors that affect how treatment is provided.
The patient may have a number of identified problems, some of which
interact, making it more difficult to predict the outcome of any individual treatment.
The patient is in a highly unstable and unpredictable condition either
related to their primary problem or an exacerbation of other related factors.
The patient requires at least one-to-one continuous nursing
supervision and observation for 24 hours a day.
