[Purpose] The purpose of the present study was to analyze factors for community-contained acute care hospitals that affect the total length of stay in acute care and rehabilitation hospitals among patients with proximal hip fractures. [Patients] Three hundred and thirty two patients undergoing surgery for proximal hip fractures were recruited. [Methods] Using the median value of the total length of stay, we classified the patients into two groups: a short-term group and long-term group. We retrospectively analyzed factors at the time of transfer from acute care hospitals to rehabilitation hospitals.
