Previous literature indicates many factors contribute to inpatient hospital length of stay (LOS). Unfortunately no comprehensive or theoretical model, which highlights the underlying processes affecting these relationships, exists. The purpose of this study was to generate a theoretical framework, using two prevalent medical conditions (acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and cesarean (‘c’) section), of the determinants of LOS.
