Pediatric hospital discharges to home health and postacute facility care: a national study.
The researchers assessed the national prevalence of, characteristics of children discharged to, and variation in use across states of home health care (HHC) and facility-based postacute care (PAC) for children. They found that HHC and PAC use after discharge for hospitalized children is infrequent, even for children with multiple chronic conditions. It varies significantly by race/ethnicity and across states.
