Lockery, Shirley A.; And Others
Health & Social Work, v19 n3 p182-91 Aug 1994
Studied determinants of rehospitalization of elderly people with longitudinal sample of 264 older adults. Seventeen percent of subjects were readmitted within 30 days of discharge. Controlling for health and socioeconomic factors, main determinant of readmission was discharge placement; those placed back into community for home care were more likely to be rehospitalized than those discharged to institutions.
