PVA Visit Types List Page

The Visit Types List in PVA is where you will find the types of visits available in the system.

A Visit Type is a standard set of questions associated with a Location, or a category of visit, that the questions will be used to assess.

The Location Type can help to categorize the Locations, report on trends, and guide adjustments to staffing as patterns emerge. Examples would be “Patient Room”, “Maternity”, or “Emergency”.

Below we will deep dive into the various features and what the Visit Type would be used for.

You can access this page from the navigation bar by expanding the “PVA – All” menu, then expand “Visit Types” and click “List Types”.



The PVA “Location Types” is a list of all the active “Types” that have been loaded into the Patient Visit Assessment (PVA) system.

The fields available are:

  • ID – When a new Type is created within the system it is given a unique number. That is what the id refers to.
  • Type – The name of the Type of Assessment that will be conducted
  • PV Q’s – The number of Patient Visit questions that are associated with the Type
  • DR Q’s – The number of Discharge Room questions that are associated with the Type
  • Default – If the Type is set as the Default, used in the Bulk Add Locations process, it will have a check mark visible
  • Actions – Click ‘Edit’ to change the change the type name, modify questions, or add notes for the Type. “Create” will open a new form to create a new Location, with the questions pre-filled. Click ‘Delete’ to remove the Location from the list.
