Inpatient census calculation
I think I have this but want to make sure...
Here is the problem:
At 11:59 p.m. on January 1, the Community Hospital census was 321.
On January 2, 73 patients were admitted, 24 were discharged, and 3 were admitted and died that day.
In their ICU unit the census on January 1 was 12.
On January 2, 4 patients were admitted, 3 were discharged, and 1 was admitted later that day dies in the ICU.
Answer the following:
a. Calculate the inpatient census for January 2 (I believe it is 321)
b. Calculate the hospital daily inpatient census for January 2 (I think it is 367).
c. Calculate the ICU inpatient service days for January 2 (I don't believe I am understanding this question but I think it would be 2).
