Term: Hospital Days Used for Short Stays (1-29 Days)

Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2006-02-15


The rate of hospital days used in short stays (1 to 29 days) per 1,000 area residents in a fiscal year. Multiple admissions of the same person are counted as separate events, and all days used are summed together. Values are adjusted to reflect the total population of Manitoba (males and females combined). Personal Care Homes and Long-Term Care facilities are excluded (Riverview, Deer Lodge, Rehab Centre for Children and Adolescent Treatment Centre). Note that only inpatient separations are included as they have a length of stay > 0 (zero).
