$24.00 plus tax (Refund Policy)

The number of hospital beds provides a measure of the resources available for delivering services to inpatients in hospitals. It does not capture, however, the capacity of hospitals to furnish same‐day emergency or elective interventions. Furthermore, this section focuses solely on hospital beds allocated for acute care, not taking into accounts beds in psychiatric care or long‐term care units.
