Week 4 Case Study Assignment Kaleb Mussell Case Study 1: Hospital Mortality Statistics Bob and Pat are trying to decide where to spend their retirement. They have narrowed the field to four retirement centers. Their decision will be based largely on the quality of care offered at the hospitals local to each of the retirement communities. They are researching the closest hospital to each of the retirement centers, and they want to know each hospital’s mortality (death) rate. 1. What is the formula for calculating mortality (death) rate? Death rate is: Number of deaths of inpatients in a period divided by number of discharges (including deaths) then multiply by a hundred. 2. Use the statistics provided in the table to calculate the gross mortality (death) rate (rounded to one decimal place) for the hospital nearest to each retirement center. Record your results in the “Mortality Rate” column. 3. Examine the data and identify where will Bob and Pat choose to live? Explain why.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
