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.
