      • Permanent inpatient beds
      • Around-the-clock nursing
      • Diagnostic and therapeutic services
  • Organized Medical Staff
    • Physican
    • Nurse
    • A small community hospital may not have a large medical staff
    • A large university teaching hospital may have a very large medical staff
  • Permanent Inpatient Beds
    • Set up at all times
    • Ready to receive patients
    • Temporary beds may also be used when an emergency arises, but to be a hospital you must have “some” permanent beds
  • Around-the-Clock Nursing
    • There must be at least one nurse available to patients 24 hours a day
    • Small facilities will have a small nursing staff
    • Large facilities will have a large nursing staff
  • Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services
    • Diagnostic Service: What is the nature of the illness or injury?
      • Example: X-rays / Laboratory
    • Therapeutic Service: What is provided once a diagnosis is determined
      • Example: Medication / Treatment
  • Types of Healthcare Facilities
    • Acute Care Facilities ( Inpatient )
      • Requires an overnight stay (24 hours)
        • community, teaching, and public hospitals
        • services provided within them aim to help resolve pressing problems or medical conditions, such as a heart attack

      • Free-standing surgery centers
      • Diagnostic and therapeutic facilities
