Factors Driving Emergency Department Revisits or Hospitalization Within 30 Days Post-Discharge in Patients with Acute Bacterial Skin and Skin Structure Infections (ABSSSI)
ABSSSI is a major contributor to antibiotic use. While most patients (PTs) with ABSSSI present to the Emergency Department (ED) and are discharged on oral antibiotics, little is known about the frequency that patients with ABSSSI return to the ED or hospital (H) within 30 days post initial episode of care (IEC). Our primary objective was to quantify the frequency and identify risk factors (RF) for patients with ABSSSI that return to the ED and/or H within 30 days post IEC.
