The Role of Checklists in Reducing Critical Care Readmissions

Speaker Charles Durbin, MD, FAARC Date Jun 6, 2012 1:05 PM

In this presentation, common causes for readmission will be identified and the impact of readmission on patient mortality and hospital costs will be explored. Objective determination of readiness for ICU discharge is an evolving area of interest that may impact this problem. Dr. Durbin will discuss a novel data collection and scoring form developed by the AARC to be used at ICU discharge to identify patients at risk for readmission. Strategies directed at this high-risk group should reduce the readmission rate and improve survival.
