ABSTRACT

To improve health policies directed toward ameliorating quality and also to characterize the profile of patients who attend medical centers, it is necessary to determine causes of mortality in any healthcare organization. Objective: To analyze time-trend hospital mortality at the Manuel Velasco Suárez National Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery (MVS-NINN) between 1995 and 2001. Methods: Data were taken from database of morbidity and mortality of MVS-NINN. All cases were coded by the International Classification of Disease (10th edition). We calculated specific rates of mortality and time-trends during a 7-year-period. Results: When main causes of mortality were included in these analyzes, rates of hospital mortality at MVS-NINN showed a non-significant tendency to decrease during this period. Conclusions: Decline of mortality time-trend is generally in accordance with increasing life expectancy of Mexican population; this increase is due to progress in medical knowledge and to new technological and therapeutic advances, especially in the third level institutions such as this institute.


Key words: Hospital mortality, neurologic diseases.
