Thanks for the feedback !

The patient hospitalization has different stages. The very first one is
to make the reservation. This is done ahead of the hospitalization.
Once the patient and the hospital confirm the admission date, a bed is
reserved to the patient during her / his stay period.

Finally, when the patient arrives to the hospital is when the
hospitalization is done. So, basically, we'll admit the person in the
health institution the very same day that the person enters.

Most processes (including the bed reservation, Operating Rooms, meals,
roundings, stock moves, etc..) take the current date automatically.
Doing it manually, retrospectively would be quite cumbersome.

If you just want to record the information related to the
hospitalization, a workaround writing the info without confirmation.
The upcoming version of GNU Health allows you to enter a Patient Page
of Life in the context of hospitalization for historical

Let me know your thoughts

All the best
