Getting an S status code in eNICQ requires that the record be in a particular state of completion. Some data items MUST be completed while other data items MUST NOT be completed. Because data item numbers may vary from year to year, the exact instructions for which items to complete and which to leave blank may also vary from year to year.
Infants who transferred will also require different instructions depending on the outcome of the transfer (whether the infant was readmitted or not, for example.)
The instructions for the current year can be found attached via a link at the bottom of this topic.
