Care of Women in U.S. Hospitals, 2000
Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, 2002 - Hospital utilization - 48 pages
Women accounted for about 60 percent of all adult hospital stays during 2000. This report provides an overview of hospital care for women and compares hospital stays for women and men and includes a special section on obstetric care in hospitals. This report summarizes information from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS), a database of about 7 million records maintained by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The NIS is uniquely suited to providing a comprehensive picture of hospital care because it can provide information on relatively uncommon diagnoses and procedures, as well as on subpopulations, such as various age groups. The NIS covers all patients discharged from hospitals, including the uninsured, those covered by public payers (Medicare and Medicaid), and those with private insurance, as well as provides information on total hospital charges for all patients, unlike any other data source in the United States.
