'Weekend effect' hospital risk found in Canadian study
from CBC News
Some people who are admitted to hospital on the weekend for emergency or surgical care face a slightly higher risk of death than if they came to hospital during a weekday, but the effect is so small that it shouldn't detract from seeking care, Canadian doctors say. The "weekend effect" — slightly higher odds of dying for weekend hospital admissions — has been documented for some patients in hospitals in Canada, the U.S., U.K., Denmark, Australia and South Korea.
