Hospital occupancy rate by older patients is high, and it will be even higher in the future. Their hospital stay is usually longer, making it important for hospitals to develop structures with the best efficiency possible.

Method
Hospital discharges of patients older than 75 years with the 15 most frequent
Diagnosis-Related Groups (DRG) in Geriatrics were recorded during a 5-year
period in a 1,200-bed hospital. Length of stay was compared between the two
acute geriatric units (AGU), one in the general hospital (GH) and another in an
affiliate hospital (AH), as well as with the rest of departments.

[...]

Conclusions
AGU are 25% more efficient than the rest of hospital departments in managing
hospital admissions of patients older than 75 years.
