    Observational analysis: Patient factors associated with discharge to SNF included longer

    length of stay, advanced age, female sex, hypotension, higher ejection fraction, absence of

    ischemic heart disease, and a variety of comorbidities

    Qualitative comparative study: Unlike the Hannan et al. (2011)study, the current study did

    not find a significant relationship between age, gender, race, or BMI and 30-day readmissions

    even though both samples were similar in makeup. Age was not found to be a statistically

    significant predictor of 30-day rehospitalization in other literature as well (Stewart et al.,2000).

    Several studies that looked at gender differences in CABG patients found female gender to have

    a statistically significant correlation with 30-day readmission

    Retrospective study: Transfer to another healthcare facility rather than discharge home is a

    common practice after cardiac surgery. A substantial percentage of in-hospital deaths occurs

    after discharge from the primary institution.

    Prospective study: reveals that a large proportion of patients (39%) had a decline in

    disposition after vascular surgery. A hospital stay more than 6 days, emergency operation, open

    operative wound, systemic complications, and minor amputation were strong independent

    predictors of decline. Factors significantly associated with a decline in disposition at discharge

    by univariate analysis included diabetes mellitus (P

    Retrospective review + Surveys:Overall, 19 participants (21%) had 1 or more cardiac

    disorders that placed them in the AACVPR high-exercise risk category, indicating a potential for

    cardiac decompensation during exercise. Two additional indicators for the severity of illness

    were length of hospital stay (57% hospitalized for more than 1 week, n = 46) and chronic dialysis

    (10%, n = 8). Eight (6.4%) patients demonstrated cognitive impairment. Upon admission, 10

    patients (8%) were unable to walk, and only 5 regained the ability to walk as of discharge.

    Patients who did not regain their ability to walk were discharged to a long-term nursing home.

    Physical function, as measured by FIM scores upon both admission and discharge, was well

    below the midpoint of 72, indicating impairment. Thirty-eight percent of patients were receiving

    an antidepressant, and 16% (n = 13) presented documentation of daily complaints of pain at

    moderate intensity. Thirty percent of the patients had both 3 or more hospital complications and

    SNF complications. Comorbidity was high, ie, patients exhibited a mean of 3 comorbid

    conditions. The social variables that were measured included marital status (30% were married)

    and living arrangements (30% lived alone). TABLE INCLUDED

    The most significant predictors of dying or still being in a facility at 1 year include being on

    dialysis, right heart failure, and having chronic lung disease. Considering perioperative

    complications, requiring prolonged ventilation decreases the odds of being home and alive at 1

    year by 67%: one-year survival at home, 95.4%; rehabilitation, 63.6%; SNF, 52.3%; and LTAC,

    Retrospective study: survival after discharge is significantly reduced in patients requiring

    prolonged ICU care.

    A Cox survival model:Established operative risk factors may not be good predictors of

    long-term post-CABG survival. Late mortality may be attributable to many causes, not

    necessarily related to patients' cardiovascular and general health at the time of operation.
