Subject:        Orthopaedic patient cost per day/night

 

Request:

  1. The cost of patient hospital stay per day/night for an elective Total Hip Replacement patient.
  2. The cost of patient hospital stay per day/night for a trauma Hemiarthroplasty procedure patient.

 

 

Response:

1. The cost of patient hospital stay per day/night for an elective Total Hip Replacement patient. The definition still not answerable. We have costs for specific HRG’s (for 2017/18) and the cost is for the whole procedure not a per day rate.

 

On top of this, for a hip replacement there are 67 HRG’s dependant on what is done, age, other interventions, CC scores. etc. Also, there are no HRG codes with Hemiarthroplasty in their name.

 

Due to system problems we are unable to provide any more up to date info than 2017/18.

2. The cost of patient hospital stay per day/night for a trauma Hemiarthroplasty procedure patient.
