Notes: An inpatient discharge occurs when a person who was admitted to a hospital leaves that hospital. A person who has been hospitalized more than once in a given calendar year will be counted multiple times as a discharge and included more than once in the hospital inpatient discharge data set; thus, the numbers in this report are for discharges, not persons. The emergency room (ER) and the inpatient hospitalization data are mutually exclusive. The ER data include only those who were not admitted as inpatients. Patient's race/ethnicity is available for hospital inpatients but not emergency room visits. All county-level data is based on patient zip code of residence and not the location of hospitalization. The data does not include Department of Defense, Indian Health Services, Veteran's Administration, or state licensed pyschiatric hospitals. All discharges are for the residents of Arizona. Discharges of out-of-state residents are not included in this report. Diagnostic groupings and code numbers are based on the International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM).

The external cause of injury codes E880-E886 and E888 (accidental fall) in the first E-code field were used to identify the emergency room visits and discharges of inpatients with fall injuries. The ICD-9-CM codes 820.0 - 820.9 were used to identify the discharges for hip fractures.
