Meissner, Paul; And Others
Gerontologist, v29 n4 p524-28 Aug 1989
Compared patients (N=103) admitted to inpatient geriatric care unit focusing on restoration of functional status to control-unit patients (N=75). Found greater improvement in basic functional capabilities of study-unit than control-unit patients. Found mixed picture when length of stay and total charges of study- and control-unit patients were compared by diagnostic-related groups. (Author/CM)
