Duckett S, Jackson T: Do the elderly cost more? Most research on hospital-acquired complications in the elderly has focussed on physician-related adverse events with smaller sample sizes using case-note review [23,24] or has not included all four common complications studied here. As the data are a census sample, and therefore contain the complete population, age-standardisation has not been applied. Using a person identifier, patients were coded as having dementia if dementia was ever documented as a principal or additional diagnosis (AR-DRG ICD10 codes include F00, F01, F02, G30, G31) in any hospital stay over a two-year period, offering a high capture rate and minimising selection bias [14]. cat. Other disclosable relationships are: participation in a team and consultancy paid by Alzheimer’s Australia which uses some of the same database for some of the analysis; a NSW Government funded project related to the Hospital Dementia Study held by Alzheimer’s Australia NSW focusing on the experience of people with dementia discharged home from hospital relating to availability and suitability of community-based services; Pfizer paid travel expenses to present data from the Hospital Dementia Services study at an education meeting they sponsored (speaker’s fee was refused); and Department of Health and Ageing Australia paid for travel expenses to present data from the Hospital Dementia Services study at an educational meeting they sponsored. Looking only at the 50+ population with above-average LOS, complications were associated with 24.7% of the estimated cost of additional days spent in hospital in 2006–07 in NSW (A$225 m/A$914 m) (Table 3). 0000073120 00000 n 0000070063 00000 n Melbourne, Australia: Grattan Institute, 2018.

In 2017–18, one or more hospital-acquired complications was reported for 185,000 hospitalisations (affecting about 2.0% of all hospitalisations). 0000084984 00000 n As a consequence, people with dementia account for nearly one-quarter of the costs of above-average LOS, despite accounting for only one-tenth of hospital episodes for people aged 50+. A significant component of any of these care models is the quality and quantity of nurse staffing. 0000004920 00000 n Publically available hospital data were also sourced for the total average cost of patient discharges by DRG by state for the financial year 2006–07.

Hospital complications 'cost $5 billion a year' By Dana McCauley. 0000004045 00000 n METHOD: To investigate costs associated with nurse-sensitive hospital-acquired complications in an older patient population 157,178 overnight public hospital episodes for all patients over age 50 from one Australian state, 2006/07 were examined.

People with dementia cost on average A$2,710 more per hospital episode than do those without dementia [11].
