Term: Separation Rates for Long Stays (30+ days)

Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2006-02-15


The rate of hospital separations for stays of 30 days or more, per 1,000 area residents in a fiscal year. Personal Care Homes and hospitals dedicated to long-term care are excluded, though chronic care beds within acute care hospitals could not be accurately excluded, so are included in these rates. Multiple admissions of the same person are counted as separate events. Values are adjusted to reflect the total population of Manitoba (males and females combined).
