Interaction effects between rehabilitation and discharge destination on inpatients’ functional abilities

Fase Badriah, MPH, et al.

A patient’s functional ability after hospital discharge may be influenced by in-hospital rehabilitation and discharge destination. However, we know very little about this point. Thus, how an interaction between in-hospital rehabilitation and discharge destination influenced patients’ later functional ability was examined. The subjects of the study were 835 inpatients who went through rehabilitation at a hospital in Japan. The stroke and orthopedic patients’ functional abilities were influenced by an interaction between in-hospital rehabilitation and discharge destination. These findings may be useful when deciding on the best discharge destination for a patient.
