  1. Hospital costs of firearm injuries.

    Article - En anglais

    The purpose of this study was to provide economic, epidemiologic, and clinical data on initial hospitalizations of patients with firearm injuries.

    Design 

    Concurrent prospective study ; data obtained by medical records review.

    Setting 

    A county university teaching hospital designated a level I trauma center.

    Subjects 

    34,893 persons first hospitalized for firearm injuries at the King/Drew Medical Center in Los Angeles from January 1978 through December 1992.

    Results 

    The aggregate hospital cost for 34,893 firearm injuries, exclusive of professional fees, was $264,506,455.00, of which 96% was borne directly or indirectly by public funds.

    The charge for initial hospitalizations was $240,700,855.00.

    Mean and median initial charges per case were $6898.00 and $1,022.00, respectively (range, $944.00 to $296,232.00).

    The 5% of patients with charges greater than $100,000 accounted for 42% of all charges ; 45% of all patient days were attributable to the 4% patients, with hospitalizations lasting more than 30 days.

    Three thousand thirty-one patients were rehospitalized a total of 4,578 times ; charges for rehospitalization totaled $23,805,600.00.

    At least 55% (75% of identifiable weapon and missile injuries) of all charges resulted from handgun injuries.

    Treating the majority of patients on an outpatient basis and by using selective angiography for extremity wounds, a savings of more than $775,000,000.00 resulted.
