Abstract: The purpose of this study was to obtain information on hospital-based treatment of persons with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and other Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)-related illnesses. Aggregate data were obtained from each surveyed hospital, with the hospital as the unit of observation. Topics covered included patient demographics, service volume and structure, sources of payment, and types of services and treatments rendered. Information was also solicited on inpatient and outpatient AIDS/HIV hospital utilization, patient discharge disposition and likely mode of exposure, hospital community AIDS/HIV education programs, and policies for the treatment of AIDS/HIV patients, for employees with AIDS/HIV, and for the confidentiality of AIDS/HIV patients. Additionally, hospital administrators were queried about monitoring and tracking of outpatient services and the existence of special hospital-operated AIDS/HIV outpatient clinics. Financial characteristics covered included net revenues, costs, and charges for inpatient and outpatient AIDS/HIV services, payer source, and methods used to determine costs. In 1989 and 1991, separate data were obtained for pediatric AIDS/HIV patients.
