Finished admission episodes
A finished admission episode is the first period of in-patient care under one consultant within one healthcare provider. Please note that admissions do not represent the number of in-patients, as a person may have more than one admission within the year.
Diagnosis (Primary Diagnosis)
The primary diagnosis is the first of up to 14 (7 prior to 2002-03) diagnosis fields in the Hospital Episodes Statistics (HES) data set and provides the main reason why the patient was in hospital.
Figures have not been adjusted for shortfalls in data (i.e. the data are ungrossed).
Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) are compiled from data sent by over 300 NHS trusts and primary care trusts (PCTs) in England. The Information Centre for health and social care liaises this brings about improvement over time, some shortcomings remain.

Mr. Lansley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment she has made of a link between contract cleaning services and levels of hospital-acquired infections in hospitals; when the assessment was made; and if she will make a statement. 
We have also studied the link between cleanliness and healthcare associated infections (HCAI) as measured by Metcillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Clostridium difficile rates. Again, we found no evidence of a relationship with out-sourcing.
