Prolonged hospitalization constitutes a grave concern worldwide because it generates negative effects on the health system such as, for example: increase in costs, deficient accessibility to hospitalization services, overload of emergency services, and the risk of adverse effects

The causal agents of extended hospitalizations found with higher frequency are: delay in the performance of surgical and diagnostic procedures; need for attention in another complexity level; social-family situation, and the age of the patient.


When you take a private health insurance don’t look just the price. Although all the insurance companies could be the same, the covers are very different between them like the days of hospitalization which is one of the most important covers. Sometimes a patient has paid the hospital room having covered the contracted days in his insurance policy.
