Inappropriate delays in hospital discharge for AIDS patients add to the expense of health care, as well as to the felt by the patient.
It has been postulated that delays are due to a lack of suitable out-of-hospital services and weak patient support networks.
The charts of AIDS patients discharged from hospitals in northern New Jersey and southern New Jersey/Philadelphia, PA between 3/88 and 1/90 (n = 601 discharges for 454 patients) were examined to determine the discharge services or goods which were orderer and/or received, the extent of actual delay, and the causes of these delays.
