Description Introduction: hospital stay is a management indicator that measures the degree of use of the bed, the resources invested, as well as the effectiveness of the services provided. Objective: analyze the morbidity factors associated with prolonged hospital stay in the Urology, Gynecology and Internal Medicine departments of the Autonomous Institute Hospital Universitario de Los Andes, Mérida, Venezuela, 2012-2016. Methodology: quantitative approach, explanatory type, documentary design and transversal, retrospective temporality. The sample was made up of 362 medical records of hospital discharges. The technique used was the documentary review and the instrument a registration matrix. Results: the three specialties reflected an average stay well above the norm, 33,38 days in Internal Medicine, 33,50 in Urology and 28,22 in Gynecology. Of the morbidity factors, the diagnoses that prolonged the stay the most were: skin and soft tissue starting point sepsis in Internal Medicine (68,93 days), cystocele in Gynecology (43,00) and renal lithiasis in Urology (37,58). Complications during hospitalization turned out to be the factor that affected the most the mean stay; observing significant differences in the three services: Urology p (0,000), Internal Medicine p (0,006) and Gynecology p (0,033). Conclusion: morbidity factors influence the prolonged hospital stay of the Urology, Gynecology and Internal Medicine departments.
Introducción: la estancia hospitalaria es un indicador de gestión que mide el grado de aprovechamiento de la cama, de los recursos invertidos, así como de la efectividad de los servicios prestados. Objetivo: analizar los factores de morbilidad asociados a la estancia hospitalaria prolongada en los servicios de Urología, Ginecología y Medicina Interna del Instituto Autónomo Hospital Universitario de Los Andes, Mérida, Venezuela, 2012-2016. Metodología: enfoque cuantitativo, tipo explicativa, diseño documental y temporalidad transversal, retrospectiva. La muestra quedó conformada por 362 historias clínicas de egresos hospitalarios. La técnica utilizada fue la revisión documental y, el instrumento una matriz de registro. Resultados: las tres especialidades reflejaron una estancia media muy por encima de la norma, 33,38 días en Medicina Interna, 33,50 Urología y 28,22 Ginecología. De los factores de morbilidad, los diagnósticos que más prolongaron la estancia fueron: sepsis punto de partida piel y tejidos blandos en Medicina Interna (68,93 días), cistocele en Ginecología (43,00) y litiasis renal en Urología (37,58). Las complicaciones durante la hospitalización, resultaron ser el factor que más afectó la estancia media; observándose diferencias significativas en los tres servicios: Urología p (0,000), Medicina Interna p (0,006) y Ginecología p (0,033). Conclusión: los factores de morbilidad influyen en la estancia hospitalaria prolongada de los servicios de Urología, Ginecología y Medicina Interna.Introduction: hospital stay is a management indicator that measures the degree of use of the bed, the resources invested, as well as the effectiveness of the services provided.
