ABSTRACT

This report from the National Center for Health Statistics presents estimates on diagnostic conditions for patients discharged from nonfederal, short-stay hospitals in 1973 (excluding newborn infants), based on data collected by the Hospital Discharge Survey.

A maximum of five diagnoses were coded, based on ICDA classifications, for each medical record selected in the national sample. First-listed and all-listed diagnoses are presented by age, sex, and color of patient, and by geographic region and size of hospitals from which patients were discharged. Data on first-listed diagnoses also reflect discharge rates and average lengths of stay; percent distributions are given for all-listed diagnoses. The number of inpatients with a single diagnosis or with the first of multiple diagnoses and their associated lengths of stay are shown; there is also a brief section devoted to 1973 fatality rates in nonfederal, short-stay hospitals.
