##### Definition:

The occupancy rate is a calculation, which is used to exhibit the actual consumption of an inpatient health ability for a given time period.

#### Formula:

Occupancy rate = Total number of inpatient days for a given period x 100 / Available beds x Number of days in the period
##### Example :

In the month of June 4000 inpatients days were served in a hospital with 150 beds . Calculate the percentage of inpatient occupancy rate.

##### Given,

Total number of inpatient days = 4000
Available beds = 150
June has 30 days. So, number of days in the period = 30

##### To Find,

Inpatient occupancy rate percentage

##### Solution:

Substitute the given values in the formula,

Occupancy rate | = Total number of inpatient days for a given period x 100 / Available beds x Number of days in the period |

| = 4000 x 100 / 150 x 30 |

| = 400000 / 4500 |

| = 88.889 % |
