Healthcare - Inpatient Census & Service Days

---------------------------------------------------

Part II


c. Inpatient Service Days

• Inpatient Service Days: the care received by one patient during a 24 hour period (in this case: midnight, Aug 1 to midnight, Aug 2).

Inpatient Service Days for Aug 2 = Daily Inpatient Census for Aug 2

Inpatient Service Days for Aug 2 = 277


d. TOTAL Inpatient Service Days for Aug 1 and 2 (the sum of both days)

TOTAL = Inpatient Service Days for Aug 1 + Inpatient Service Days for Aug 2

TOTAL = Daily Inpatient Census for Aug 1 + Daily Inpatient Census for Aug 2


TOTAL = 270 + 277

TOTAL = 547

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Summary of Calculations:


Inpatient census (midnight, Aug 1)     268

+ Patients Admitted on Aug 2         +  16

- Patients Discharged on Aug 2       -    9
                                                      -------
Inpatient census (midnight, Aug 2)     275

+ Patients both Admitted
& discharged on Aug 2                  +    2
                                                      -------
Daily Inpatient Census for Aug 2        277

Inpatient Service Days for Aug 2        277


Inpatient Service Days for Aug 1        270

+ Inpatient Service Days for Aug 2     277
                                                      -------
TOTAL Service Days for Aug 1-2        547

Question:

by Barbara
(Mccomb, MS)


inpatient census midnight aug 1 was 268
daily inpatient census aug 1 was 270
Aug 2 sixteen patients admitted
9 discharged, 2 admitted and discharged same day.
What were statistic for aug 2?

a. inpatient census
b. daily inpatient census
c. inpatient service days
d. total inpatient service days for Aug 1 and 2


Answer:

a. Inpatient Census at midnight, Aug 2


• Inpatient Census for Aug 2: The number of inpatients counted at a particular time (in this case: midnight, Aug 2)


Inpatient Census for midnight, Aug 2 = Inpatient Census for midnight, Aug 1 + Inpatients Admitted on Aug 2 - Inpatients Discharged (including deaths) on Aug 2

(note: the number of patients which were both admitted and discharged on Aug 2 are not counted since they are no longer present at midnight)

Inpatient census (midnight, Aug 2) = 268 + 16 - 9

Inpatient census (midnight, Aug 2) = 275



b. Daily Inpatient Census for Aug 2 (care given for the entire 24 hour period)


• Daily Inpatient Census: the number of inpatients treated during the last 24 hours (in this case: midnight, Aug 1 to midnight, Aug 2).

(Daily Inpatient Census for Aug 2 = Inpatient Census for midnight, Aug 1 + Inpatients Admitted on Aug 2 - Inpatients Discharged (including deaths) on Aug 2 + Inpatients both Admitted and Discharged on Aug 2)


(The day of admission is counted as one day. The day of discharge is not counted. Therefore, the 16 patients admitted are counted, the 9 patients discharged are not counted, and the 2 patients both admitted and discharged are counted)


Daily Inpatient Census for Aug 2 = 268 + 16 - 9 + 2

Daily Inpatient Census for Aug 2 = 277
