They were the primary discharge diagnosis in 12.5% of hospital stays, followed by injuries and poisoning (11.9% of stays), diseases of the musculoskeletal system and diseases of the digestive system (10.1% of stays each). 9.9% of inpatient hospital stays were related to cancer. Complications during pregnancy, childbirth and puerperium accounted for 5.4% of all discharge diagnoses, psychological and behavioural disorders for 5.0%.
With regard to day stays in acute hospitals, more than one third of all patients had an eye disease as their main diagnosis (174,263 cases, of which about six tenths were cataract cases). Approximately one fifth of day hospital stays focused on the treatment of cancer (99,289 cases).
