  1. Demographic factors in a population-based survey of hospitalized, work-related, ocular injury.

    Article - En anglais

    PURPOSE 

    To obtain population-based estimates of the incidence of severe work-related ocular trauma and to identify demographic factors related to increased risk of this type of injury..

    METHODS 

    A statewide population-based survey of severe work-related ocular injury was performed using hospital discharge data.

    These data were derived from all inpatient admissions to nonfederal, acute-care hospital facilities in the state of California during 1988.

    Worker's compensation was used as the principal payor code to establish the work-relatedness of a given ocular injury.

    Census data for the state of California were used to obtain population denominators..

    RESULTS 

    Two hundred sixty-nine (approximately 14.3%) of all admissions for which ocular trauma was the principal diagnosis (1,876) were work related.

    Annual incidence for severe work-related ocular injury was 1.76 per 100,000 employed persons when ocular trauma was the principal diagnosis and 2.98 per 100,000 employed persons when ocular trauma was a principal or secondary diagnosis.

    Projected to the working-age United States population (128 million) these annual rates correspond to an estimated 2,165 acute hospitalizations for work-related ocular trauma as the principal diagnosis, and an estimated 3,745 acute hospitalizations for work-related ocular trauma as a principal or secondary diagnosis.

    Incidence of severe work-related ocular injury was highest among men, Hispanics, and individuals 20 to 24 years of age (5. (...)
