Health care facilities: data refer to available beds in hospitals (HP.1) and subcategories (such as curative care beds, psychiatric care beds, etc.) and available beds in nursing and residential care facilities (HP.2) as well as medical technology and technical resources in hospitals (HP.1).
Total hospital beds (HP.1) are all hospital beds which are regularly maintained and staffed and immediately available for the care of admitted patients. Total hospital beds are broken down as follows:
- Curative care (acute care) beds;
- Psychiatric care beds;
- Long-term care beds (excluding psychiatric care beds);
- Other hospital beds.
Beds in nursing and residential care facilities (HP.2) are available beds for people requiring ongoing health and nursing care due to chronic impairments and a reduced degree of independence in activities of daily living (ADL) in establishments primarily engaged in providing residential care combined with either nursing, supervision or other types of care as required by the residents.
The care provided can be a mix of health and social services.
