This article summarizes Lin et articles "Worse Outcomes After Readmission to a Different Hospital After Sepsis: A Nationwide Cohort Study," which was published in the Emergency Medicine issue of October 2022.
Sepsis is the primary cause of hospital fatalities in the United States and accounts for 13% of all hospital expenses.
Patients with sepsis are also more likely to be readmitted. The goal of this study was to examine the causes and consequences of different hospital readmissions (DHRs) in sepsis patients.
The 2017 United States National Readmissions Database was used to identify patients who had been hospitalized with sepsis.
Using multivariable logistic regression analysis, about 5 models were created to clarify how DHR and hospital outcomes relate to one another.
In 2017, 21.97% of sepsis patients readmitted in the US within 30 days were moved to a different facility. Overall, hospitalization was most frequently caused by re-admission for an infection.
DHR was observed in 20% of US sepsis patients, according to research. According to their findings,
patients who are transferred to another hospital within 30 days run the risk of dying more frequently, spending more money on hospital care overall, and having longer hospital stays.
