Association of dementia with early rehospitalization among Medicare beneficiaries.
This study examined the question of whether dementia was associated with a greater likelihood of Medicare patients being readmitted to the hospital within 30 days. Using a group of 25,839 hospitalizations, including 3,908 admissions of Me.icare beneficiaries with dementia, it found that those with a dementia diagnosis were more likely (17.8 percent vs. 14.5 percent) to be readmitted within 30 days.
