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 2012. 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 157 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’.
