A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted on Average length of Stay of Geriatric Patients in selected Hospital in Dhaka city. Total case document 300 Patients of the age group of 60 years to above. The mean age of the documented Mean±SD = 68.22±8.020. Within 300 Patients Case document 18% (55) were found minimum age 60 years, 12% (36) were found maximum age above 75 years. Current study indicated that mostly the geriatric peoples are more vulnerable get disease like Cardiovascular Disease 45 (15%). Kidney Disease 25 (8.3%), Hypertension with Diabetes 22 (7.3%), Stroke with facial Palsy 21 (7.0%), Stroke with LSHP 19 (6.3%), CKD with COPD 18 (6.0%), Hypertension 16 (5.3%), Respiratory Distress Syndrome 15(5.0%), Old MI with Ischemic Stroke 12 (4.0% ), Ischemic Stroke 1(3.7%). And more common diagnosis is acute confusional state. This study shows geriatric patients were average length of hospital stay (ALOS) 4.20 days. A retrospective case note review was done for all long-Stay patients under geriatric medicine service of a restructured hospital in Singapore from 1st April 2002 to 31st March 2003. Long-Stay patients were defined as those whose ALOS had notably exceeded the average LOS for the DRG best on principle admitting diagnosis. However the average LOS varied widely across the specialties. A Separate analysis was therefore required to determine the proportion of long- Stay patients in the respective specialties using specialty specific long-Stay markers. For geriatric medicine service, the average LOS for geriatric medicine was 10.9 days the ALOS at the 25th, 50th, 75th, 90th and 95th percentile were 5, 8, 14, 22 and 29 days, respectively the specialty specific marker for geriatric medicine long-stay patients, by using the marker above, was 28 days.[4]

Keywords: Average Length of Hospital stay (ALOS) of geriatric patients.
