Readmissions after hospital discharge are common and may be related to adverse events after discharge. However, this Canadian study of discharges from 11 hospitals found that fewer than 1 in 5 urgent readmissions could be considered preventable. Both this proportion and the overall incidence of readmissions varied widely across individual hospitals.
