Model of care for the hospital treatment of individuals with HIV infection.
Health Trends. 1991; 23(2):55-9.HT

Abstract

This study was undertaken and completed in 1988, in an attempt to determine the reasons for admission to hospital, and the optimum care required for patients with Human Immunodeficiency Virus related illnesses. Approximately half of the total medical admissions stayed for less than a week, and patients admitted for terminal care and social care occupied a relatively small proportion of the beds. The single largest group of admissions were those for inpatient management of AIDS-related pneumonias. The results of this study provide a greater understanding of the resources currently required for such care, and suggest initiatives for meeting future needs.
