This is a report on in-patient and day patient discharges from acute public hospitals participating in the Hospital In-Patient Enquiry (HIPE) scheme in 2011. Discharge activity is examined by type of patient and hospital, and by demographic parameters (such as age and sex). Particular issues of relevance to the Irish health care system covered in the report relate to the composition of discharges by medical card and public/private status. Discharges are also analysed by diagnoses, procedures, major diagnostic categories, and diagnosis related groups. Maternity discharges are examined separately from other discharges. The analysis is presented at the national level and is also disaggregated by Health Service Executive (HSE) administrative areas.

See page 96 for total discharges: principle diagnosis by sex and age group. This includes ‘mental and behavioural disorders due to alcohol’ and ‘mental and behavioural disorders due to the use of other psychoactive drugs’. Page 98 for mean length of stay

See page 141 (& 142-143) for main diagnostic group total discharges: ‘alcohol/drug use and alcohol/drug induced organic mental disorders’ and ‘injuries, poisonings and toxic effects of drugs’. For more detail see page 173.
