Conducted by researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and the Parkland Health and Hospital System, the observational cohort study reviewed 11,309 patients discharged between Nov. 1, 2009 and Oct. 30, 2010 from six Texas hospitals, examining the incidence, predictors, and post-discharge outcomes associated with HAA. Patients with anemia on admission or missing hematocrit values were excluded. more
