Multiple linear and log-linear Poisson regression models were used to identify predictors of days with diarrhea and dehydration, respectively, and multiple logistic regression was used to assess their role in mortality.Results: Among 400 children enrolled, the median (IQR) age was 15.0 months (11.2-19.2 months), 58{\%} were boys, and 61{\%} had caregiver-reported diarrhea at admission. During hospitalization, the median (range) number of days with diarrhea was 5 (0-31), the median duration of hospitalization was 17 days (1-69 days), and 39 (10{\%}) died.
