Association of psychological disorders with 30-day readmission rates in patients with COPD.
Using a 5 percent sample of Medicare beneficiaries, the researchers examined the association of psychological disorders such as depression, anxiety, psychosis, alcohol abuse and drug abuse with early readmission for patients with COPD. They found that psychological disorders like depression, anxiety, psychosis, alcohol abuse and drug abuse are independently associated with higher all-cause 30-day readmission rates for Medicare beneficiaries with COPD.
