Differences in Laboratory Use and Length of Stay Between University and Community Hospitals
Schroeder, Steven A.; O'Leary, Dennis S.
Journal of Medical Education, 52, 5, 418-20, May 77
This report takes advantage of a natural experiment to compare length of hospital stay and use of diagnostic services among internists' patients admitted to a university hospital or to a neighboring community hospital. Cost differences were largely due to greater use of diagnostic services at university hospitals. (LBH)
