HEADER Micro Trend Length of Stay
The length of stay (LOS) is printed as part of the detailed report.  All 
inpatient cultures would have a length of stay displayed.
This criteria is useful for tracking nosocomial (hospital acquired) 
infections.  Note - there is no check that a similar isolate was recorded 
before the length of stay restriction.
                        Length of Stay
All reports can be restricted to include only isolates that were collected 
after a specified time from admission.  Only isolates from inpatients (at 
the time of specimen collection) would be included.
For example, if a length of stay of '3' is entered then reports would only 
include data on specimens collected 3 days after the admission date.
