Canberra Hospital—bed occupancy rates (Question No 1030)

Mrs Dunne asked the Minister for Health and Wellbeing, upon notice, on 23 March 2018:

(1) What was the average bed occupancy rate for each ward in The Canberra Hospital (a) during 2016-17 and (b) between 1 July 2017 and 31 December 2017.

(2) What was the average bed occupancy rate for each ward in the Calvary Public Hospital (a) during 2016-17 and (d) between 1 July 2017 and 31 December 2017.

Ms Fitzharris: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1)(a) Canberra Hospital operates many wards - both same-day and overnight. However, ward configuration adapts to meet changes in demand and clinical practice. It is not meaningful to report individual ward occupancy at Canberra Hospital as the hospital operates dynamically to meet complex demand as a whole. The ACT Health Annual Report 2016-17 shows that for Strategic Objective Seven that Canberra Hospital recorded a mean percentage of overnight hospital beds in use in 2016-17 of 94 per cent.

(b) Canberra Hospital operates many wards - both same-day and overnight. However, ward configuration adapts to meet changes in demand and clinical practice. It is not meaningful to report individual ward occupancy at Canberra Hospital as the hospital operates dynamically to meet complex demand as a whole. The preliminary result for the period 1 July 2017 to 31 December 2017 is 95 per cent.

(2)(a) Calvary Public Hospital operates many wards - both same-day and overnight. However, ward configuration adapts to meet changes in demand and clinical practice.

(b) Calvary Public Hospital operates many wards - both same-day and overnight. However, ward configuration adapts to meet changes in demand and clinical practice.
