Duration of stay

Although the number of admissions is increasing, we see - as is the case in adult psychiatry - that the average number of occupant days in a given year for a residential hospitalisation in a K-service is decreasing. On the other hand, we can see that the average number of occupant days in a year of day or night hospitalisation is increasing.
