Evidence suggests that patients with hip fractures should begin rehabilitation no later than six days following surgery. The reality is often far different. In an initiative led by the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) Rehab Network, acute care and rehab/complex continuing care hospitals across the GTA have implemented a new early referral process to aid transition of patients from acute care to inpatient rehabilitation as early as possible to improve their outcomes. Two of the participating acute care hospitals have now surpassed the six-day target and two others are within range...

OBJECTIVE Extended hospital length of stay (LOS), unplanned hospital readmission, and need for inpatient rehabilitation after elective spine surgery contribute significantly to the variation in surgical health care costs. As novel payment models shift the risk of cost overruns from payers to providers, understanding patient-level risk of LOS, readmission, and inpatient rehabilitation is critical. The authors set out to develop a grading scale that effectively stratifies risk of these costly events after elective surgery for degenerative lumbar pathologies...

CASE: A 44 year old woman with a history of stroke s/p aneurysm clipping, seizure, and substance abuse was brought to the hospital after a family member received a call from her friend saying she was acting unusual and may have had a seizure while hanging out on the street. At her baseline, she needed modest assistance in daily activities after her CVA and conversed without issue. Her mother died of a stroke. On exam the patient was afebrile, normotensive with mild tachycardia to 110...

OBJECTIVE: To compare patient and burn characteristics between patients who had a pre-existing psychiatric diagnosis and patients who did not in a Burn Unit at an academic hospital. BACKGROUND: Psychosocial issues are common in patients recovering from a burn; however, little is known regarding hospital course and discharge outcomes in patients with a pre-existing psychiatric diagnosis presenting with a burn. Baseline medical comorbidities of burn patients have been shown to be a significant risk for in-hospital mortality...

Background. The "Patterns of Activity Measure" (POAM-P) is a self-administered questionnaire that assesses "avoidance", "pacing" and "overdoing" activity patterns in chronic pain patients. Objectives. To adapt the POAM-P to French ("POAM-P/F") and test its validity and reliability in Chronic Musculo-Skeletal Pain patients (CMSP). Methods. We followed the recommended procedure for translation of questionnaires. Five hundred and ninety five inpatients, admitted to a tertiary rehab center in the French-speaking part of Switzerland for chronic pain after orthopedic trauma, were included (sex ratio M/F = 4...

BACKGROUND: Total joint arthroplasty procedures continue to provide consistent, long-term success and high patient satisfaction scores. However, early unplanned readmission to the hospital imparts significant financial risks to individual institutions as we shift away from the traditional fee-for-service payment model. METHODS: Using a combination of our hospital's administrative database and retrospective chart reviews, we report the 30-day and 90-day readmission rates and all causes of readmission following all unilateral, primary elective total hip and knee arthroplasty procedures at a large, urban, academic hospital from 2004 to 2013...

BACKGROUND: Insurance status affects access to care, which may affect health outcomes. The objective was to determine whether patients without insurance or with government-sponsored insurance had worse quality of care or in-hospital outcomes in acute ischemic stroke. METHODS AND RESULTS: Multivariable logistic regressions with generalized estimating equations stratified by age under or at least 65 years were adjusted for patient demographics and comorbidities, presenting factors, and hospital characteristics to determine differences in in-hospital mortality and postdischarge destination...

BACKGROUND: In 2011, the Hunter Holmes McGuire Veterans Administration Medical Center (VAMC) in Richmond, VA, had a cumulative readmission rate and emergency department (ED) revisits for discharged Veterans of 1 in 5. In 2012, a transitional care program (TCP) was implemented to improve care coordination and outcomes among Veterans, with an emphasis on geriatric patients with chronic disease. This TCP was created with an interdisciplinary approach using intensive case management interventions, with a goal of reducing Veteran ED and hospital revisits by 30%...

OBJECTIVE: In all countries, the boundaries are ambiguous between acute and post-acute as well as defining the dimensions of care. The aim of this study is to analyze relations between segmentation of care and payment systems. In the new prospective payment system implemented in French SSR, the grouping unit is inpatient stay and the week for day hospitalization. In 1991, the field of SSR mixed structures as diverse in their purposes as public or private hospital units of rehabilitation and "nursing homes"...

OBJECTIVE: The fear-avoidance model (FAM) is commonly used in musculoskeletal chronic pain (Vlaeyen 2012). Nevertheless, only few prospective studies have been conducted, especially on return to work (RTW). This study lays the hypothesis that the components of the FAM (catastrophizing, kinesiophobia and depression) can predict RTW 1 year after a vocational rehabilitation for orthopedic trauma patients. MATERIAL/PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 323 rehab orthopedic trauma inpatients (average time after accident: 9 months) were included...

BACKGROUND: Many CED-patients struggle with complex problem profiles and may be offered and profit from multidisciplinary multimodal rehabilitation. It is still unclear by whom and with what effects this option is used. METHODS: We compared the results of an observational cohort study of 199 CED-inpatients of a single rehab clinic with those of 310 gastroenterological outpatients using propensity score matching. RESULTS: Rehabilitands show more complex problem profiles than CED-outpatients...

BACKGROUND: Controversy exists as to which surgical approach is best for total hip arthroplasty (THA). Previous studies suggested that the tissue-sparing anterior approach should result in a more rapid recovery requiring fewer postacute services, ultimately decreasing overall episodic cost. The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to determine if any significant differences exist between the anterior vs posterior approaches on postacute care service utilization, readmissions, or episodic cost...

On July 2012, a rehabilitation hospital merged with a trauma center where the regional burn center is located. That rehabilitation center provides the only burn rehabilitation program in our region. The objective of this study was to determine if earlier initiation of inpatient rehabilitation after merger had an effect on burn survivors' functional outcomes and resource utilization. A retrospective review of electronic data of burn survivors' functional outcomes (functional independence measure [FIM] ratings on admission, at discharge, and percent change), and resource utilization (waiting time for rehab, burn center length of stay [LOS], rehab LOS, physiotherapy and occupational therapy rehabilitation workload [RehabWorkload], and discharge destination) was undertaken...

BACKGROUND: Periprosthetic hip fractures (PPHFx) are challenging complications that have become increasingly more prevalent. Wide variability exists in the quality and size of prior studies pertaining to hospital stay information. This study used the largest publicly available database in the United States to evaluate perioperative hospital data of PPHFx. METHODS: The Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project-Nationwide Inpatient Sample was used to analyze trends related to the frequency, fracture type, mortality, treatment, patient demographics, time to surgery, length of stay (LOS), and hospital charges associated with PPHFx from 2006-2010...
