Hospital care for patients aged 85 years and over 2014-15

AIHW has published Hospital care for patients aged 85 years and over 2014-15 which expands the 85 years and over age-group into four 5 year age-groups up to ages 100+ and reports on aspects of admitted patient care provided to these very old patients.
It looks at the admitted patient care provided for the oldest of patients in Australian hospitals in 2014–15 and presents information on the amount of activity there was for patients aged 85 years and over and how this has changed over time. It includes information on who used the hospital services, the length of stay in hospital, the overall type of care provided, the types of conditions patients received care for, the type of procedures undergone by the patients, and who funded the hospital stay.
