Unfallart U99 Sonstiges

The only abbreviation I can find from an online glossary is 'Übertragungsweg' but is that a possibility here and what would that mean?

  -> Thanks, Stephen. It isn't "referred to", I'm afraid, but rather "referred by". It states the name of the physician who sent the person to the hospital. (Our health system is a tad complicated).

agree  Ford Prefect: with Volkmar - I would clarify "referred from" or "referral of"
