Definition and Derivation

  • LOS per location is simply calculated as the difference between the End Date/Time and Start Date/Time of stay in that location
  • Depending on the number of locations (n) where the patient stayed, we have n locations and n start date/time
    • Location 1: Start date/time= first location start date/time and End Date/time= second location start date/time
    • Location 2: Start date/time= second location start date/time and End Date/time= third location start date/time
    • Location 3: Start date/time= third location start date/time and End Date/time= fourth location start date/time
    • Location n (last location): Start date/time= nth location start date/time and End Date/time= Dispo_DtTm
  • if there is only one location, Start date/time= first location start date/time and End Date/time= Dispo_DtTm
