For Alcohol Abuse

Inpatient Discharges by All-listed Diagnoses

Number of times alcohol abuse was mentioned in one or more diagnostic fields in the emergency room and hospital inpatient discharge records (Table A)

Number of alcohol abuse-related inpatient discharges and emergency room visits by gender, age group, and county of residence (Table B)

Alcohol abuse-related inpatient discharges and emergency room visits by diagnosis type (Table C)

Alcohol abuse-related inpatient discharges by selected diagnosis type, gender, age group, race/ethnicity, marital status, and county of residence (Table D)

Emergency room visits and discharges of inpatients with alcohol abuse as first-listed diagnosis and diagnosis type, residents 20 years or younger (Table F)

Inpatient Discharges by First-listed Diagnosis

Discharges of inpatients with alcohol abuse as first-listed diagnosis by age group, gender, race/ethnicity, and county of residence (Table 1)

Patient days for discharges with alcohol abuse as first-listed diagnosis by age group, gender, race/ethnicity, and county of residence (Table 2)

Average length of hospital stay for discharges with alcohol abuse as first-listed diagnosis by age group, gender, race/ethnicity, and county of residence (Table 3)

Rate of discharges of inpatients with alcohol abuse as first-listed diagnosis by gender, age group, race/ethnicity, and county of residence (Table 4)

Rate of patient days for discharges with alcohol abuse as first-listed diagnosis by gender, age group, race/ethnicity, and county of residence (Table 5)

Emergency Room Visits by First-listed Diagnosis

Rate of emergency room visits with alcohol abuse as first-listed diagnosis by gender, age group, and county of residence (Table 7)

Number of emergency room visits and rates for selected diagnostic categories related to alcohol abuse by county of residence (Table 8)

The following ICD-9-CM codes for first-listed (or primary) diagnosis were used to identify the discharges for alcohol abuse: 265.2 (Thiamine and niacin deficiency), 291 (Alcoholic psychoses), 303 (Alcohol dependence syndrome), 305.0 (non-dependent abuse of alcohol), 357.5 (Alcoholic polyneuropathy), 425.5 (Alcoholic cardiomyopathy), 535.3 (Gastritis; acute/alcoholic), 571.0-571.3, 571.6 (Chronic liver disease and cirrhosis), 760.71 (Fetal alcohol syndrome), 790.3 (Excessive blood level of alcohol), 980.0-980.9 (Toxic effect of alcohol).

The report distinguishes between the first-listed diagnosis and all-listed diagnoses. The number of first-listed diagnoses is the same as the number of discharges. All-listed diagnoses include first-listed diagnoses and secondary diagnoses and are provided for users who want to know the total number of times certain conditions have been reported for hospitalized patients. The discharge record may include more than one diagnosis specific to alcohol abuse (i.e. alcohol dependence syndrome and alcoholic gastritis). Therefore, when counting all-listed diagnoses, the sum of all occurrences of diagnoses specific to alcohol abuse (the column sum in the tables D, E and F) is greater than the total number of discharges with alcohol abuse diagnosis.
