Determinants of postsurgical discharge setting for male hip fracture patients

Matthew L. Maciejewski, PhD, et al.

Veterans hospitalized for hip fracture are discharged to a range of settings for rehabilitation and care, but the factors that influence postsurgical discharge setting are not well documented. The purpose of the study was to examine the patient, facility, and market factors that influence the choice of postsurgical discharge setting. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers a comprehensive spectrum of rehabilitation care for veterans eligible for surgical treatment in VA facilities, so examining patterns of postacute care setting choice for a prevalent type of surgery provides unique data to inform clinical and policy discussions.
