Estimates for probability of hospital discharge. Four different estimators for the probability of hospital discharge, for elderly patients hospitalized with CAP with PSI Risk Class V. The four approaches outlined in the text were used: cumulative incidence estimator and complement of the Kaplan-Meier estimator when patients who died were censored at the longest LOS value of 30 days ( C I ^ d i s ( t ) and 1- Ŝ d i s W ( t ) , purple line), complement of the Kaplan-Meier estimator (1- Ŝ d i s ( t ) , green line), and complement of the Kaplan-Meier estimator restricted to only patients who survived (1- Ŝ d i s R ( t ) , orange line).
