Part I

Question:

Aug 1: 9 patients at midnight
Aug 2: 2 patients admitted, 2 admitted, then died, 1 transfer 4H to ICU, 1 tranfer fr ICU to Radi Ser, 1
died afer seen in ICU for several days.

A. Inpatient census
B. Daily inpatient census


Answer:

Your problem does not state whether the figures given are for an entire hospital, or a care unit within a hospital.

I assume the figures (although they a small) represent an entire hospital because of the references to transfers to and from different care units. For this reason, the transfers will be ignored (these patients are merely being transferred back and forth within the same hospital).

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/died on Aug 2 are not counted since they are no longer present at midnight)

Inpatient census (midnight, Aug 2) = 9 + 2 - 1

Inpatient census (midnight, Aug 2) = 10



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 = 9 + 2 - 1 + 2 = 12
