On average, 300 children attend Good Hope Hospital as outpatients
We found a virulent closely related clone (Panton-Valentine Leukocidin--positive, SCCmec V:ST59) of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in inpatients and outpatients
The good news is that PT/SLP and OT outpatients
in nonhospital settings are no longer restricted by the caps to $1,500 worth of services in each category.
Phillips said the results of the UC-San Diego study bore out the research team's premise that if the increase in medication error deaths could be tied to a shift to increased outpatient

, an effective pathway might run from presentation and diagnosis to cure, covering all expectations across the entire continuum of care.
The process for outpatients

In some programs, group problem-solving programs have been designed for higher functioning inpatients and recently discharged outpatients
who demonstrate increased resolution of orientation and memory difficulties.
As expected, DRG's on this list, which included patients with complications or patients 70 years of age or over (DRG's 269, 259, 154, 152, 157, 401) have fewer patients admitted as outpatients
than do the less-complex companion DRG's (270, 260, 155, 153, 158, 402).
Panelists from the 5 per cent of labs with red ink attribute their losses by and large to patient demographics--typically, a high proportion of elderly outpatients

Each year, the institution admits more than 33,000 inpatients and serves roughly half a million outpatients
