Impact of primary payer status on outcomes among patients with burn injury: A nationwide analysis
from ABA Burns Journal
Adults with burn injury were selected from the National Inpatient Sample. The primary outcome was inpatient mortality. Secondary outcomes were morbidity (septic shock and prolonged mechanical ventilation (PMV)), treatment metrics (time to surgery and parenteral or enteral nutrition (P/E-nutrition)) and resource utilization (length of stay (LOS) and total hospitalization costs and charges). Confounders were adjusted for using multivariate regression analysis.
