Definition of concepts
- Hospital centre
- Centre that provides a permanent service, including admission, with medical and nursing care, and that provides beds for continuous attention. Hospital centres are classified according to the type of hospital care given: acute admission, socio-sanitary and psychiatric to which they dedicate 80% or more of their operative beds. If a centre provides more than one type of care, without any of them reaching 80%, then they are classed as mixed hospitals.
- Average hospital stay
- Average number of days that a patient stays in hospital, i.e. the ratio between the total number stays for patients admitted over the year and the number of admissions and releases to and from hospital over the same period of time.
- Rotation index
- Number of patients that use a hospital bed over the course of a year.
- Hospital occupancy rate
- Number of occupied beds in relation to the total over a period of one year. Does not include casualty services, those used by the centre's staff, nor those for people accompanying patients.
- Hospital bed
- Bed that is regularly attended to by medical and nursing staff, located in an area of a hospital centre and that offers ongoing care to the admitted patients. Includes incubators and only operative beds. Excluded from this category are beds for births, for healthy neonates, for anaesthesia and reanimation, for unit observation or casualty services, for external consultancy and for people accompanying patients. They can be classified as two different types: care of acute patients and socio-sanitary care.
- Type of arrangement
- Understood to be the existence or not of an agreement between a public financing body (Catalan Health Service or Health Department) and a hospital centre, in order for the latter to provide hospital care services.
- Units of Measure of Activity (UMA)
- Basic unit of hospital activity weighted according to the estimated workload of each activity: [((discharges + outpatient surgeries) x 1) + (0.0266 x total visits) + (0.0472 x emergencies) + (0.0796 x other outpatient treatments) + (0.0907 x partial hospitalisation sessions)]. This indicator uses weighting algorithms taken from the UME (standardised units of measure) index.
Statistics on Healthcare Establishments with Internment Schemes (EESRI) was introduced by the Spanish Government's Presidential Order on 18th May 1973 in order to collect information on the structure, facilities and activity of hospital centres. It is a part of both the Generalitat de Catalunya and the Spanish Government's official statistics; for this reason, all centres operating in Spain are obliged to comply. From 1980 onwards, it is the Catalan Ministry of Health's responsibility to collect, confirm and analyse the data from authorised centres in Catalonia.
