How much do hypoglycemic events cost your hospital every year? Let’s do the math!
A study by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) revealed that a single adverse drug event involving a hypoglycemic agent resulted in an average marginal cost of $4,312 for an inpatient stay.*
To determine how this impacts your hospital on an annual basis, simply enter the total number of annual discharges. The total estimated cost will automatically calculate.
