No Fly List (no transfer to hospital) For QAS

Develop a centralised database for QAS  that clearly identifies patients that wish (though either their advanced healthcare directives or EOL planning) to elect to NOT transfer to hospital.

They do this in the UK and its really effective at preventing futile care and ensuring that patients wishes are ahdered to (e.g. not overidden by an inexperienced staff member at a nursing home) about where they want to be and where they want to die.

Why the contribution is important

This is a proven simple idea that can ensure patients preferences are honored, preventing unwanted, uncomfortable futile care.
