Abstract


Re-hospitalisation Rate of Patients Hospitalised with a Diagnosis Of COVID-19: A Training And Research Hospital Example

Background/aim: COVID-19 cases originated in Wuhan and it has become a global problem. The purpose of study to examine the rate of re-hospitalisation within 30 days after the completion of medical treatments for patients suffering from COVID-19. Materials and methods: In this study, the results of COVID-19 patients who were re-admitted to the hospital within 30 days were examined. The general and clinical characteristics of the patients and laboratory results were evaluated using parametric and nonparametric tests. Results: Included in this study were 22 patients, comprising 14 males and 8 females, with re-hospitalisation rate within 30 days and a diagnosis of COVID-19 that was 0.6%. The mean age of the patients who were re-hospitalised was 56.45 years. The major clinical symptoms of the patients who were re-hospitalised, respectively, were cough, shortness of breath, fever. When the levels from the first hospitalisation and the second hospitalisation were compared, an increase in the LYM count and N/L ratio was detected and the difference was statistically significant. Conclusion: A holistic patient assessment and care approach should be adopted by evaluating the symptomatic complaints as well as the comorbidities of the patients, so as to reduce the number of re-hospitalisations.
