Hospital readmissions frequent in month following heart attack, pneumonia or heart failure

(January 22, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From Connecticut - Readmissions are frequent in the month following hospitalizations for heart attack, heart failure or pneumonia, according to a report published in JAMA. Researchers reviewed data on older patients who had suffered a heart attack, pneumonia or heart failure between 2007 and 2009. They found that readmissions were frequent and were the result of a variety of medical conditions, often for something completely different than the initial cause of hospitalization. These results occurred regardless of the patient's age, sex, race or time since discharge.
