Enter the inpatient days of care and the bed days available into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Bed Occupancy Rate. 

Bed Occupancy Rate Formula

BOR = IDOC / BDA * 100


  • BOR is the Bed Occupancy Rate (%)
  • IDOC is the inpatient days of care
  • BDA is the bed days available

To calculate Bed Occupancy Rate, divide the inpatient days of cares by the bed days available, then multiply by 100.

How to Calculate Bed Occupancy Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Bed Occupancy Rate.

  1. First, determine the inpatient days of care. 
  2. Next, determine the bed days available. 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = BOR = IDOC / BDA * 100.
  4. Finally, calculate the Bed Occupancy Rate.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

inpatient days of care = 500

bed days available = 2000
