Prolonged hospitalisations case study
A study conducted in Thailand (Journal of Medical Association of Thailand, 2004, March, Volume 97, Supplem ent 13) investigated causes of prolonged hospitalisation in medical wards. Some of the key findings were:
- At day 7, 20% of patients on hospital were stable but awaiting completion of intravenous antibiotics
- At day 14, 16% of patients in hospital were stable but were awaiting completion of intravenous antibiotics
- At day 30, 18% of patients in hospital were ventilator dependent, and a further 15% were in hospital because of difficulties in finding appropriate carers for homecare.
- At day 90, 30% of patients in hospital were receiving palliative care (end of life) and a further 30% were in hospital because of difficulties in finding appropriate carers for homecare.
- After 90 days, 80% of patients were receiving palliative care (end of life) The above study demonstrate the great number of stable patients who are in hospital for intravenous antibiotics, and who being stable could receive such care at home.
We coordinate teams of doctors, nurses and other professionals.
