Problems after discharge and understanding of communication with their primary care physicians (PCPs) among hospitalized seniors: a mixed methods study.

Arora VM, Prochaska ML, Farnan JM, et al. Journal of hospital medicine. 2010;5:385-91.

This survey of geriatric patients, conducted 2 weeks after hospital discharge, identified a large proportion who suffered problems with their care after discharge. The primary care physician was unaware of the hospitalization for nearly one-third of patients, and those patients reported significantly more concerns about their care.
