Total charges averaged $70,700 for a mean 8.5-day stay when children and adolescents were hospitalized with a diagnosis of musculoskeletal infection along with other medical conditions. With a primary diagnosis of infection, the stay was shorter (6.3 days), and mean charges were $46,000. Total hospital charges for all primary musculoskeletal infection discharges in 2012 were $419 million. (Reference Table 7.2 PDF CSV)
