Abstract

A 12-month study of emergency medical admissions at one trust suggests most readmissions could not be avoided. The re-admission rate within 28 days was 10 per cent, of which 5 per cent were found to be preventable. Readmissions were higher among smokers, men and people living in hostels. The study found no evidence of increased readmissions in winter.
