Total knee arthroplasty continues to increase in popularity and remains the most common joint replacement surgery. The success of total knee replacement surgery is attributed to improved outcomes, a better patient experience, and lower cost. Rapid recovery total knee replacement protocols have led to these advances by decreasing length of hospital stay, minimizing readmissions, and reducing the cost of surgery. Rapid recovery total knee replacement pathway efforts should focus on preoperative education, optimization of modifiable risk factors, and identification of patients that may not be suitable for this pathway...

OBJECTIVES: A growing number of patients survive sepsis hospitalizations each year and are at high risk for readmission. However, little is known about temporal trends in hospital-based acute care (emergency department treat-and-release visits and hospital readmission) after sepsis. Our primary objective was to measure temporal trends in sepsis survivorship and hospital-based acute care use in sepsis survivors. In addition, because readmissions after pneumonia are subject to penalty under the national readmission reduction program, we examined whether readmission rates declined after sepsis hospitalizations related to pneumonia...

BACKGROUND: Although opioids remain the standard therapy for the treatment of postoperative pain, the prevalence of opioid misuse is rising. The extent to which opioid abuse or dependence affects readmission rates and healthcare utilization is not fully understood. It was hypothesized that surgical patients with a history of opioid abuse or dependence would have higher readmission rates and healthcare utilization. METHODS: A retrospective cohort analysis was performed of patients undergoing major operating room procedures in 2013 and 2014 using the National Readmission Database...

BACKGROUND: Intermediate care units (IMCU) are established in many hospitals to better match the requirements of patient care with respect to their personnel, equipment and other resources. This should relieve intensive care unit (ICU) capacities for more severely ill patients and reduce readmissions to ICU. This study was conducted to investigate the effects of IMCU use on ICU populations. METHODS: This is a retrospective analysis of the German National Registry of Intensive Care from the years 2000 to 2010...
