Ir al hospital nos enferma? – BBC News

Does going into hospital make you sick?

Unpublished research suggests that a stay in hospital weakens us so much that, far from restoring us to health, we are more likely to get sick again after discharge. A professor at Yale says enough is enough – it’s time to completely rethink patient care.

When a hospital discharges someone, both patient and doctor are usually united in a hope that they will not see one another again soon.

But for some time it’s been known that about a fifth of patients who leave US hospitals are back within a month. In England the number is lower – about 7% – but readmissions still cost the NHS £2.4bn in the 2012-2013 financial year.
