Role of interprofessional teams in emergency general surgery patient outcomes.
This paper discusses the results of a 2015 survey of acute care hospitals, which asked whether residents and advanced practice providers participate in emergency general surgery care. The data was then linked to patient data from 17 State Inpatient Databases using American Hospital Association identifiers to determine if that was associated with better management of patients, mortality, or complications. Eighty-three hospitals and 49,271 unique emergency general surgery admissions were included in the dataset. Hospitals with residents had reduced odds of systemic complications compared with hospitals without them or other clinical support. Hospitals with only residents had the lowest odds of operative complication.
