occupancy level

The proportion of beds in a hospital or ward which are in use at a particular time. Occupancy levels are calculated by dividing the number of acute beds occupied by patients by the total number of acute beds in hospital. The national average occupancy of 87% in the UK (compared to a national average occupancy of 78% in 1000 bed hospitals in USA and national average of 77% occupancy in Europe) is due to a policy to build smaller hospitals, which has considerable undesirable implications for staff and patients, and contributes to excess deaths for hospital inpatients.
