Risk of readmission to hospital for pediatric asthma.

Author information

Department of Pediatrics, Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, Hayward, California 94589-2485, USA.


To describe risk for hospital readmission for pediatric asthma occurring within 12 months of index hospital admission, we reviewed the medical records of all pediatric (age < 15 years) patients admitted for asthma to the Kaiser Foundation Hospital (KFH), Hayward, California, between September 30, 1991 and June 30, 1993. Patients aged < 5 years or who had a history of prior hospital admission were at high risk for hospital readmission within 12 months of the index admission. A single-session asthma class did not reduce risk for hospital readmission.
