New research has pointed out that one out of 12
patients is back in the hospital after a month of being discharged.
The most common reasons for this hover around
infection post surgery, pain, and sometimes problems with the heart.
Though it is not possible to prevent all
readmissions, hospitals are now working on strategies to help with infection control and increase awareness of patients in recovering well.
This may be good to reduce the number of patients returning
to hospitals as well as reduce healthcare costs.
