The goal was to examine risk factors and expenditures for early rehospitalization (within 30 days of discharge) for non-behavioral health conditions among Medicaid-enrolled Floridians over 8 years. There were 1,689,797 hospitalization episodes with 19% (N = 314,742) resulting in early rehospitalization. Total gross charges for early rehospitalization were over 13 billion dollars.

An important element is preventing exacerbations of psychiatric conditions that trigger discharge from the nursing home (NH) because of an emergency commitment (EC) for an involuntary psychiatric examination. The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between resident and facility characteristics and the risk of EC for involuntary psychiatric ex...

Objectives: We hypothesized that variability in voluntary movement paths of assisted living facility (ALF) residents would be greater in the week preceding a fall compared with residents who did not fall. Design: Prospective, observational study using telesurveillance technology. Setting: Two ALFs. Participants: The sample consisted of 69 older ALF residents (53 female) aged 76.9 (SD � 11.9 years). Measurement: Daytime movement in ALF common use areas was automatically tracked using a commercial...

Objectives: Hospitalizations for long term care residents, including those from assisted living facilities (ALFs), are very costly, often traumatic, and increase risk for iatrogenic disorders for those involved. Currently, hospital expenditures account for approximately one-third of total national health care spending. Hospitalizations for ambulatory careesensitive (ACS) conditions are considered potentially avoidable, as these are physical health conditions that can often be treated safely at a...
