The optimum follow-up period for assessing mortality outcomes in injured older adults.
J Am Geriatr Soc 58(10):1843-9.
Abstract : In-hospital mortality is much lower than postdischarge mortality in injured older adults, with a substantial portion of persons dying shortly after discharge from the hospital. Mortality appears to stabilize by 6 months after injury, although 60-day postadmission follow-up captures most of the excess daily mortality rate.
