More than 80% of 30-day readmissions following surgery are due to patient factors

An analysis of eight surgical subspecialties at Johns Hopkins hospital found that more than 80 percent of the variability in 30-day readmissions was due to individual patient factors. The overall readmission rate was 13.2 percent, including 9.6 percent of patients who underwent cardiac surgery.

Lead researcher Faiz Gani, MBBS, and colleagues collected data from all patients discharged from Johns Hopkins hospital after undergoing surgery from Jan. 1, 2009, through Dec. 31, 2013. Results were published online in  JAMA Surgery  on Aug. 5.
