Who is in our Hospitals...and why?
This deliverable describes who is occupying acute care hospital beds in Manitoba: where they are from, what they are there for, how long they stay, and their demographic profile. This research also identifies individuals who are 'Alternate Level of Care' (ALC) patients, and report on the number of hospital days used by these people while waiting for personal care admission, home care acceptance, etc. Results are provided for each hospital in Manitoba and are also summarized by RHA and hospital type. The report also provides some descriptive results regarding 'heavy users' of the acute care system, for example, patients in the top 5% of hospital day use.
