Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Given the potential adverse effects of hospitalization on older persons, alternatives to traditional hospital care have been and continue to be developed. In the Home Hospital model, acutely ill patients avoid the inpatient setting altogether, with all the critical elements of acute hospital care brought home to them: physician and nursing care, medicines, and appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic technologies.
