This report shows the total number of hospital separations at Victorian public hospitals. 

Note: Statewide total includes all Victorian Hospitals reporting activity to the Victorian Admitted Episodes Dataset (VAED).

Understanding admission & separation

An admission is a process whereby the hospital accepts responsibility for the patient's care or treatment.  Admission follows a clinical decision based upon specified criteria that a patient requires same-day or overnight (multi-day) care or treatment.  Admissions include other specified programs such as hospital in the home. A separation is defined as 'the process by which an episode of care for an admitted patient ceases'.
