Length of Stay analysis for hip replacements Data Briefing march 2011
Length of stay between trusts has always shown great variation. There has been a larger focus in recent years at reducing length of stay to improve the patient experience by reducing the number of days spent in hospital, freeing up beds in hospital for new patients and therefore saving the trust money. This example analysis shows how the variation has reduced over time and how far more trusts are now appearing in the lowest band for length of stay for this particular procedure than five years ago.
