1. Differentiate between the terms inpatient census and daily inpatient census.

The inpatient census indicates the number of patients present in the healthcare facility at a particular point in time. The daily inpatient census includes the number of inpatients present at the census-taking time each day and any inpatients who were both admitted after the previous census-taking time and discharged before the next census-taking time. 2. What is an intrahospital transfer? Intrahospital transfers are patients who are moved from one Patient Care Unit or PCU to another within the facility. 3. Is it possible that the transfers into a patient care unit may not equal the transfers out of the same patient care unit on the same day? Yes. The transfers in and transfers out on an individual PCU may not be equal because it is possible to transfer more patients in than transfer out and vice versa. 4. When must transfers in and transfers out be equal? The total intrahospital transfers in must always equal the intrahospital transfers out. Important for the overall hospital recapitulation. 5.
