Bed occupancy rate
 

– Application Exercises

For the month of August, Community Hospital, a 350-bed hospital, provided 9,978 days of service to hospital inpatients. Calculate the average daily census and the inpatient bed occupancy rate for the month.
9978/31 = 321.87 patients average daily census.

321.87/350 = 0.9196 occupancy rate = 91.96%
For the month of August, Community Hospital provided 750 days of service to newborns. There are 25 bassinets in the newborn nursery. Calculate the average daily census for newborns and the inpatient bed occupancy rate for newborns for the month.
750/31= 241.19 patients average daily census
241.19/25= 9.6476 occupancy rate 9.6%

For the month of March, Community Hospital experienced 12 deaths, nine of which occurred within 48 hours of admission. It also experienced 404 discharges. Calculate the gross death rate and the net death rate for the month.
12/404= 0.0297 gross death rate
12-9= 3×100= 300
300/404-9= 0.7594 net death rate

For the month of March, Community Hospital experiences 93 deliveries, 8 of which were Cesarean sections. Calculate the C-section rate.
8/93=0.0860×100
8.6% c- section rate

Beginning January 1, 20XX, Community Hospital had 125 inpatient beds. On June 15, the bed count was increased to 150. There were 45,907 inpatient service days provided to hospital inpatients and 46,113 days of services provided to discharged patients. The hospital experienced 7,205 admissions and 7,318 discharges. Calculate the average daily census for the year. Also calculate the ALOS and the bed occupancy rate for the year.
During 20XX, Community Hospital experiences 28 late and intermediate fetal deaths and 1,016 live births. Calculate the fetal death rate.

Hospital Statistic June 20XX June 20YY
Average daily census total 8,754 / 30 = 291.8 = 292 8,832 / 30 = 294.4 = 294
Adults and children 7,847 / 30 = 261.56 = 252 7,944 / 30 = 264.8 = 265
Newborn 907 / 30 = 30.2 = 30 888 / 30 = 29.6 = 30

Average length of stay total 4,739 / 752 = 6.3 5,487 / 742 = 7.39 = 7.4
Adults and children 4,385 / 636 = 6.89 = 6.9 5,132 / 610 = 8.4
Newborn 347 / 116 = 2.99 = 3.0 355 / 132 = 2.68 = 2.7

Bed occupancy rate total (8,754 × 100) / (300 × 30) = 875,400/9,000 = 97.26 = 97.3% (8,832 × 100) / (300 × 30) = 883,200 / 9,000 = 98.13 = 98.1%
Adults and children (7,847 × 100) / (265 × 30) = 784,700 / 7,950 = 98.7% (7,944 × 100) / (265 × 30) = 794,400 / 7,950 = 99.9%
Newborn (907 × 100) / (35 × 30) = 90,700 / 1,050 = 86.38 =86.4% (888 × 100) / (35 × 30) = 88,800 / 1,050 = 84.57 = 84.6%

Gross death rate (20 × 100) / 752 = 2.65 = 2.7% (16 × 100) / 742 = 2.16 = 2.2%
Net death rate [(20 – 12) × 100) / (752 – 12)] = 800 / 740 = 1.08 = 1.1% [(16 – 9) × 100) / (742 – 9) = 700 / 733 = 0.95%
Newborn death rate (2 × 100) / 117 = 1.72%/ (3 × 100) / 132 = 2.27%
Fetal death rate (2 × 100) / (348 + 2) = 0.57% (4 × 100) / (357 + 4) = 1.1%
