For instance, in the second study, C:T ratios were lower in hospitals with bed sizes of 200 or fewer and in hospitals that did not have teaching programs than they were in hospitals with bed sizes greater than 200 and in hospitals that maintained teaching programs.
The first 2 studies gathered data on these rates in hospitals of all bed sizes.
For the 3-year period during which the first 2 studies were conducted in hospitals of all bed sizes, the aggregate C:T ratio, that is the total number of crossmatches performed by all participants divided by the total number of transfusions administered by all participants, decreased by almost 20% to slightly less than 2.
The advantage to excluding smaller bed sizes is the greater continuity and reliability of data on costs, wages, productivity, and intensity for particular departments.
Furthermore, because of very low reporting, entire bed sizes have been dropped from the calculation of the department mean (Table 1).
Also, unlike the other measures, the mean values by bed size show no apparent pattern.
For example, the internal Herfindahl index has the largest R-squared value of the five regressions, and is very sensitive to variations in discharges and bed size.
Special presses for RTM have booking platens and large bed size
, combined with lower tonnage.
Medical staff characteristics at each hospital are commensurate with the hospitals' bed sizes
We are also pleased that CITATION offers an LIS that can handle the information processing needs of health care systems with diverse bed sizes
The vehicle will be available in Dodge dealer showrooms beginning in September and will include a full range of three models, five engines, four transmissions, two wheelbases and two bed sizes
, plus the largest regular cab configuration in the segment.
The current plant includes four press lines and 25 major presses with capacities up to 1500 tons using 200 inch x 100 inch bed sizes
