Hospital discharges 2019: fewer and shorter inpatient stays
Particularly the number of day cases in acute care hospitals has risen more than fivefold since the 1989. Surgical procedures in a day-care setting have increased two and a half times during the last ten years (from 114 251 to 283 493). This is mainly the result of particular surgical procedures, primarily eye surgery, being increasingly performed without an inpatient stay.
