Children ages 0-18 admitted to hospital for an eating disorder and re-admissions

Total admissions of children aged 0-18 to hospital for an eating disorder. Re-admissions for eating disorders back into hospital Last 5 years data

not enough wrap around support and re-admissions costing the health system avoided.

Giving support at home with parents/caregivers will eliminate re-admission of patients and eliminate the possibility of the caregiver entering the system if supported

proving the need for more support with in home care for parents/careers looking after children at home with eating disorders.

Social workers able to submit data to agencies such as DHB, to prove better wrap around support is needed. To present a proposal to create more support for eating disorders will require statistics.
