Quantifying variation of paediatric length of stay among intensive care units in Australia and New Zealand
OBJECTIVE To quantify variation of mean paediatric length of stay (LoS) among intensive care units (ICUs) in Australia and New Zealand. METHOD Retrospective data from Australian and New Zealand institutions that admitted children to ICU were analysed.
