Long term care provision, hospital length of stay and discharge destination for hip fracture and stroke patients
AbstractExpenditure on long term care is expected to rise, driven by an ageing population. Coordination between health and long term care is increasingly a priority for policymakers. Elderly individuals living at home who suffer trauma, such as hip fracture or stroke, generally require immediate acute hospital care, followed by long term care and assistance which can be provided either in their home or in a residential or nursing home. However, little is known about the effects of one sector on the other. This study examines the association between formal long term care supply and the probability of being discharged to a long-term care institution (a nursing home or a care home) and length of stay in hospital for patients admitted for hip fracture or stroke.
