The aim of this study was the evaluation of admissions in 1995 in the two public hospitals of Verona (Azienda Ospedaliera di Verona) ascribed to the DRG 322 (urinary tract infections from birth to 17 years). Seventy-six patients with actual diagnosis of urinary tract infection were evaluated. The coefficient of variation of hospitalization for the DRG 322 was 52%, attesting a good grade of internal homogeneity. A more detailed subdivision of the DRG 322 on the basis of age is required in pediatric patients.

Abstract

The aim of this study was the evaluation of admissions in 1995 in the two public hospitals of Verona (Azienda Ospedaliera di Verona) ascribed to the DRG 322 (urinary tract infections from birth to 17 years). Seventy-six patients with actual diagnosis of urinary tract infection were evaluated. The coefficient of variation of hospitalization for the DRG 322 was 52%, attesting a good grade of internal homogeneity. A more detailed subdivision of the DRG 322 on the basis of age is required in pediatric patients.
