Home Projects Hip and Knee Stay in Hospital Closing in on 4-Day Provincial Benchmark

Stay in Hospital Beating 4-Day Benchmark

When the program to reduce length of stay in hospital was launched in 2010, the average stay in acute care was 4.7 days for hip and knee replacements. Average length of stay has declined to 3.8 days, beating the 4-day provincial benchmark. Every bed-day saved is about $1,000 saved for Alberta’s taxpayers.
