La tasa de mortalidad aumenta a mayor distancia del hospital – The Indian Express

Death rate goes up with distance from district hospital

 

Better access to district hospitals may have prevented close to 50,000 of the estimated 72,000 deaths in India due to acute or sudden abdominal conditions in 2010, according to a study published in Lancet Global Health journal. Researchers from the University of Toronto, who mapped district hospitals and reviewed the quality of healthcare in over 3,800 of 4,064 “postal codes” in India, found that “mortality increased with increasing distance from surgical care”, with people living at 100 km or more from a “well-resourced district hospital” at the highest risk.
