Inpatient

Inpatient care is the care of patients whose condition requires admission to a hospital. Progress in modern medicine and the advent of comprehensive out-patient clinics ensure that patients are only admitted to a hospital when they are extremely ill or are have severe physical trauma.


Inpatient days are calculated by subtracting day of admission from day of discharge. (However, persons entering and leaving a hospital on the same day have a length of stay of one).
