Aim. The medical care quality remains one of the most pressing issues of the health care system, especially at the stage of reforming of the medical sector. Medical-statistical information comprising reporting forms is the basis for analyzing the status of medical care quality and incorporating management decisions to improve it.

Material and Methods. The study was performed by the means of analysis of the annual reports of the Urology Department of Municipal Non-profit Enterprise "Lviv Clinical Emergency Hospital" over a ten-year period: from 2010 to 2019. Statistical analysis included the analysis of average and relative values, as well as the calculation of indicators of the dynamic range: growth rate and absolute increase.

Results and Discussion. Analysis of the use of bed stock of the Urology Department of MNELCEH during 2010-2019 showed that the average quantity of inpatient days is 251.12-340.18 days per year. Inpatient turnover was in the range of 30.28-36.55 patients per year. The indicator of surgical activity increased by 5.4 percentage points (from 33.0% in 2010 to 38.4% in 2019). There was also a positive tendency of decrease of the duration of post-surgery stay of patients at the inpatient department of the Urology Department (from 9.25 in 2010 to 8.55 in 2019). During the study period of 2010-2019, the ratio of post-surgical complications remained relatively stable and did not exceed 5.1% (the indicator is in the range of 4.38% -5.09%). The analysis of the total mortality among all treated patients was in the range of 0.06%-0.65%.

Conclusion. The indicators analyzed in the annual reports make it possible to identify the main problematic issues in the work of the department. In order to provide professional specialized care, quality and rational use of property and human resources, algorithms should be developed to increase treatment of patients with malignant tumors and urolithiasis at the department, as in recent years we could observe an outflow of patients with these diagnoses to other healthcare establishments. There is a need for individual analysis of the causes of post-surgical complications and mortality. These issues can be resolved by introducing clinical audit into the work of the department
