The hospital stay of 115 uncomplicated surgical patients in Kasr El- Aini Hospital and a private hospital was studied in 1992 to get the undue losses of money and medical care in the first group.
The differences between the average lengths of hospital stay for cases with simple nodular goiter, oblique hernia and perianal fistula were 10.55, 13.62 and 13.25 days, correspondingly. Knowing that the average daily running costs of a bed in Kasr El-Aini Hospital is about LE 45, the undue lost costs will be 474.75-612.9 and 596.25, correspondingly/each case. The causes of such undue losses may be improper operation schedule, investigations are done on inpatient basis, no proper discharge plan
