Nearly 1 in 7 elderly patients hospitalized due to traumatic injuries was readmitted within 30 days of discharge, according to this analysis of more than 200,000 admissions. As in prior studies in other patient populations, the risk of readmission was increased for patients who experienced a Patient Safety Indicator event.
