Abstract:
A retrospective study was carried out to assess the pattern of hospital admission in a teaching hospital; to determine the frequency of the most common diagnoses and the medication prescribe during admission. 1099 male and female medical records were used to collect information on age, sex, clinical conditions, drugs prescribed and length of stay in hospital. 61.9% were females and most of them were within the age groups of 11-30yrs (45.8%). The most common diagnosis was normal delivery (17.7%); hypertension and diabetes mellitus (1.3%) were the highest associated diseases. Antimicrobials were the most common drug prescribed for the patients (25%), 77.8% of the patients were admitted in the hospital for up to 7 days. This study is important as it will throw some light on improvement of admission and provide implications for understanding disease etiology and health care policy and planning.
