Spuhler, T; Abelin, Theodor; Ehrengruber, H; Gass, Raymond; Gutzwiller, Felix; Minder, C; Stutz, J; Adam, H (1982). Auswertung der VESKA-Diagnosen- und Operationsstatistik. Sozial- und Präventivmedizin, 27(4):165-166.

Abstract

Number of admissions, days of care and the average length of stay are presented by age, sex and other criteria for Swiss short stay hospital. Persons 60 and over consumed more than 50 percent of all days of care. On the average, females of all age groups, except from 5 to 54 years of age, were hospitalized longer than males. Principal factors influencing the length of stay are: age, diagnosis and mode of discharge. The increase in the number of persons 65 and over admitted to medical departments corresponds to the demographic development, while it exceeds the demographic increase for surgical departments.
