Among patients aged 18 to 64 years, Black non-Hispanic patients had the highest rate of nonmaternal hospital stays with an operating room procedure in 2019, according to a new AHRQ brief. White patients had the highest rate of stays among patients aged 65 and older.

The HCUP Statistical Brief – Differences in Hospital Stays With Operating Room Procedures by Patient Race and Ethnicity, 2019 – presents statistics on inpatient stays with operating room (OR) procedures by patient race and ethnicity-Asian/Pacific Islander non-Hispanic (NH), Black NH, Hispanic, and White NH—using weighted estimates from the 2019 National Inpatient Sample (NIS). The population rate of stays with OR procedures is presented by patient race and ethnicity for nonmaternal and maternal stays. The rate for nonmaternal stays is based on the population of men and women of any age. The rate for maternal stays is limited to the population of women aged 15-49 years. The rate of maternal and nonmaternal stays with the five most common OR procedures also is provided. Finally, the rate of nonmaternal stays with OR procedures overall and for the 10 most common OR procedures is presented by patient age group.
