NEW FEATURE: Appendix G Age Groups

Age Groups

Platinum Recommended (2018)
We have heard your requests in regards to more flexibility to age groups and how they count when students enter in patients.

Now when a new course is created in Platinum Planner, they will default to the Platinum Recommended (2018).

This will allow students to enter in patients with the following age criteria.

  • Newborn – 1 hour to 23 hours
  • Neonate – 1 day to 28 days
  • Infant – More than 28 days to less than 1 year
  • Toddler – 1 year to less than 3 years
  • Preschooler – 3 years to less than 6 years
  • School Ager – 6 years to 12 years
  • Adolescent – More than 12 years to less than 18 years
  • Adult – 18 years to less than 64 years
  • Geriatric – 64 years and greater

If you clone a course, make sure to set the age group to the type you want to use as it will default to the orignal settings the course was set to.

Platinum Legacy (Pre-2018)
No worries, your current courses won’t change. They will stay the same with
their current age group.

  • Newborn – 1 hour to less than 1 month, 7 hours
  • Infant – 1 month, 7 hours to 1 year
  • Toddler – More than 1 year to less than 3 years
  • Preschooler – 3 years to less than 6 years
  • School Ager – 6 years to less than 12 years
  • Adolescent – 12 years to less than 18 years
  • Adult – 18 years to less than 64 years
  • Geriatric – 64 years and greater
