Variation in duration of hospital stay between hospitals and between doctors within hospitals.
International symposium in medical geography. Charlotte NC (USA), 1992/08/04.
Whether one examines the average length of hospital stay at the level of geographic areas, at the level of hospitals, or at the level of doctors, length-of-stay figures are known to vary widely.
Even for hospital admissions for comparable surgical procedures among comparable groups of patients, significant length-of-stay variations have been reported.
As is the case for variations in the occurrence of common surgical procedures, the overall conclusion is that large variations in duration of hospital stay associated with these common surgical procedures are the rule rather than the exception.
