What does it mean?
Average length of stay means the average number of inpatient days of stay. In other words it measures the duration of patient stay at the hospital for this procedure. Low ALOS is ideal and it would be achievable only when all clinical care processes and outcomes are optimal and there are no complications while the patient is at the hospital.
What does it indicate?
A low ALOS always implies that the hospital's clinical care as well as adminsitrative processes are efficient and enable the patient to go home quickly after a faster recovery.
