JAMA: Errors in care don't cause most post-surgery readmissions
from Healthcare DIVE
Anticipated complications — and not poor care — are the primary culprit in hospital readmissions after surgery, according to a new study from Northwestern Medicine and the American College of Surgeons, published this week in the Journal of the American Medical Association, according to a Northwestern press release. The study, titled "Underlying Reasons Associated with Hospital Readmission Following Surgery in the United States," found that most surgical readmissions are not due to poor care coordination or mismanagement of known issues.
