Abstract

Objective. To calculate both medical consumption and socioeconomic effectsrelated to hospitalization for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infectionin the Netherlands. Methods. During the winter seasons of 1998 to 2000, parents of all patients hospitalized for RSV in three secondary care hospitals were asked to fillout questionnaires focusing on the 2 weeks before hospitalization, the period in hospital and the 2 weeks after discharge. The questions concerned workdays lost, level of education and current profession, extra childcare needed, consultation by the family physician and drugs prescribed and costs oftravelling. Results. Seventy-three children were hospitalized. Median age was 79 days (range, 9 to 537 days), and median weight was 5295 g (range, 3130 to 10 600g). Three children were born preterm. Parents had 2 (range, 0 to 6) telephone contacts with the family doctor; the child was seen 2 (range, 0 to 4) times before hospitalization. Parents lost 0.5 workday before hospitalization. Duration of hospitalization was 5 days median (range, 1 to 12 days). Parents lost 1.5 (range, 0 to 9) workdays during hospitalization and drove 118(range, 6 to 550) miles to visit their child. In the period after discharge expenses were negligible, Calculation of all parameters into currency resulted in a total amount of $2200 per child hospitalized for RSV, Workdays lost, costs for travelling and consultation of family doctors resulted in $295 per child. Conclusions. RSV infections necessitating hospitalization in a secondary care hospital have remarkable effects on parental expenses, parental absencefrom work and medical consumption. On top of the hospital-related costs 15% should be added for parental expenses and socioeconomic costs.
