Variation in functional status after hip fracture: facility and regional influence on mobility and self-care.
Little is known about variation in functional outcomes after postacute rehabilitation for patients with hip fracture. The researchers examined variation in mobility and self-care after hip fracture rehabilitation across inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs), hospital referral regions (HRRs) and states. Variation in functional status following postacute hip fracture rehabilitation appears to occur primarily at the level of facilities rather than geographic location.
