For me there is not errors in your lines. 
Maybe there is something in the data. Try:

bys faccode pat_mrn admit_datetime discharge_datetime: count

RA

I've done this many times (in the past) to identify duplicate records;
I've typed and retyped this several times. What's going wrong?

. bys faccode pat_mrn admit_datetime discharge_datetime: gen dups=_N

. tab dups
variable dups not found
r(111);


Notice, the first line does NOT produce an error. However, it also does
not produce a new variable!

Thanks in advance for pointing out what must be an obvious error.


Jeph
