Weekend Hospitalizations Could Be Bad For Your Health

Not the kind of news we want to hear, as reported by this Medpage Today synopsis, Weekend Admission May Raise Risk of Death.

In summary, the study authors conclude:
"These data demonstrate significantly worse outcomes after nonelective admission during the weekend compared with weekdays. Although the underlying mechanism of this finding is unknown, it is likely that factors such as differences in hospital staffing and services offered during the weekend compared with weekdays are causal and mutable."
Try to stay out of the hospital this weekend!
