* Terms relating to hospitalization Discharge rate--The ratio of the number of hospital discharges during a year to the number of persons in the civilian population on July 1 of that year.

Days of care--The number of patient days accumulated at the time of discharge by a patient. A stay of less than 1 day (patient admission and discharge on the same day) is counted as 1 day in the summation of total days of care. For patients admitted and discharged on different days, the number of days of care is computed by counting all days from (and including) the date of admission to (but not including) the date of discharge.

Rate of days of care--The ratio of the number of days of care accumulated during a year to the number of persons in the civilian population on July 1 of that year.

Average length of stay--The number of days of care accumulated by patients discharged during the year divided by the number of these discharges.
