Observation only. All patients admitted to Temple University Hospital on the study day. Observational only, no intervention.
Other: observation only
This is an observational only, nonintervention study. There will be no patient contact. This was a de-identified point prevalence study of hepatitis C infection in hospitalized patients in an inner city hospital.
- Point Prevalence of Hepatitis C Infection [ Time Frame: Single 24 hour period ]The point prevalence of hepatitis C infection in our hospitalized patients will be measured on a single day. All leftover plasma/serum samples will be de-identified and tested for hepatitis C antibody and if antibody positive will be tested for hepatitis C polymerase chain reaction. Results reported as percentage of subjects who are viremic.
- Number of Evaluable Participants Age 50 or Older and Point Prevalence of Hepatitis C Viremia [ Time Frame: Single 24 hour period ]Association between point prevalence of hepatitis C viremia and evaluable participants age 50 or older.
- Number of Evaluable Patients With Hepatitis C Viremia by Gender [ Time Frame: Single 24 hour period ]Association between the incidence of hepatitis C infection and gender.
- Number of Patients With Hepatitis C Viremia by Race and Ethnicity [ Time Frame: Single 24 hour period ]Association between the incidence of hepatitis C infection by race and ethnicity
- Association Between Evaluable Viremic Patients and Length of Stay in the Hospital [ Time Frame: Single 24 hour period ]Association between hepatitis C infection and the patient's length of stay in the hospital.
- Number of Evaluable Patients by Prior Visits to the Health System [ Time Frame: Single 24 hour period ]Number of evaluable patients with at least one prior health system visit in the past 3 years by hepatitis C viremia
