14-45 Story 1: Post-Hospital Syndrome

 

Synopsis: Many people who’ve recently been in the hospital quickly make a return trip, often with a different illness. Researchers are finding that hospital stays themselves can make people sick, or at least susceptible to getting sick. Experts discuss post-hospital syndrome and simple ways it might be fixed.

Host: Reed Pence. Guests: Dr. David Newman, Director of Research in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai. Dr. Harlan Krumholz, Professor of Medicine at Yale School of Medicine and Director of Yale-New Haven Hospital Center for Outcomes Research and Evaluation.
