Length of stay. Significant variables.

Abstract

An analysis of data from medical records of 500 patients discharged from an acute care hospital in 1983 found seven of ten variables studied to be significantly related to length of stay. The results of this correlational study can lead to experimental research to determine the effects of nursing care on length of stay, which greatly affects hospitals' financial survival.
