I agree, but disagree on where to put the threshold.
You say above -hp (not in danger of dying), I would say above 0hp (stable vitals, not in danger of unconsciousness if they stub their toe).

There is a trend to shorten hospital stay as much as possible, definitively.

Back to the thread topic, I would use either Kallatari numbers (thanks for that table, Kallatari !) or the zombie p113 table, unless the player want to roll the dices.

And I would use the "under physician care" bonus whether or not the patient is in the hospital if he is actually followed by a physician daily. If he is outside, it mean his care don't require the hospital tech, not that he is not receiving care.
