Germany sees rise in number of hospital personnel:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The number of personnel employed in German hospitals rose by almost 2% between 1991 and 1999, says a report by the scientific institute of the AOK, Germany's largest statutory health insurance fund. 1999 saw an increase of 11% more hospital doctors per 1,000 of the population than in 1991. Doctors treated an average of 153 cases in 1999, compared with 150 in 1991. But, although the number of cases marginally increased, the number of days spent treating patients has fallen by almost a quarter per doctor during the same period. Although work undertaken by hospital staff has intensified due to the reduction in hospital stay, the period of stay itself, at an average of 10 days, is still high compared with similar technologically-advanced countries. Personnel accounts for some 70% of hospital costs in Germany.
