ResidentData/CovidHospitalizations

From Main

Information on all Covid-related resident admissions to outside hospitals from the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic to the present.

General comments

A given hospitalization is considered Covid-related if the resident was hospitalized for Covid or qualified for inpatient Covid treatment while admitted. This determination is made based on case review by CDCR health care staff.

ResidentId

Stable anonymized signed integer ID value for the resident

Examples
  • 578998371
  • -456578293

AdmissionDate

The date of the resident's Covid-related admission to an outside hospital. If a resident is transfered to another hospital, they may have multiple records for each hospital transfer.

Examples
  • 2020-08-11
  • 2021-01-02

DischargeDate

The discharge date of the hospitalization. If NULL, then resident was still in the hospital at the time hospitalizations were last reviewed (see LastUpdated). Residents may be discharged to outpatient care, to another hospital, or because they have died. Resident location and death status can be found in the ResidentData/NightlyHousing dataset. Time from admission to discharge does not necessarily indicate duration of inpatient treatment for Covid since a given hospitalization may include treatment for other medical conditions as well.

Examples
  • 2020-08-18
  • NULL

LastUpdated

The date up through which resident hospitalizations have been reviewed as Covid-related or not. Any Covid-related hospitalizations occurring after LastUpdated will not be in the dataset. LastUpdated will be the same for all records of any instance of a dataset and will advance in subsequent instances if/when further hostpialization reviews are conducted.

Examples
  • 2022-01-15

Limitations

  • Due to the manual review required to determine Covid-related hospitalization, the data in this table may lag relative to other tables in the dataset.
  • It is possible that the classification of a given hospitalization as Covid-related may change upon additional review. Consequently, inclusion/exclusion of a given hospitalization in this dataset may change over time.
