Calidad y eficiencia en hospitales.
Traduction en anglais : Quality assessment and efficiency in hospitals.
The objective of this research was to study the relationship between structural characteristics of hospitals (number and types of personnel, size of hospital units, and specialization of services) and health care outcomes, as measured by in-hospital mortality and average weight gain (AWG) in children under 1 year diagnosed with acute diarrheal disease (ADD).
The study was carried out at 14 nonprofit acute-care hospitals located in greater Buenos Aires.
The units of analysis were 23 pediatric wards (1,718 beds).
The study population included 3,434 ADD cases (15.6% of total ward discharges).
Various generalized linear models were used in the analysis, and the findings were adjusted according to the patients' age, severity of illness, and nutritional status.
