Disparities in utilization of outpatient rehabilitative care following hip fracture hospitalization with respect to race and ethnicity

, : Disparities in utilization of outpatient rehabilitative care following hip fracture hospitalization with respect to race and ethnicity. Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation 90(4): 560-563

To compare the prevalence of discharge home to self-care after hip fracture hospitalization among the elderly in 3 racial groups: whites, Hispanics, and blacks. Secondary data analysis. US hospitals. Patients (N=34,203) aged 65 and older with Medicare insurance discharged after hip fracture hospitalization between 2001 and 2005. Not applicable. Discharge home to self-care. Bivariate analyses showed higher rates of discharge home to self-care among minorities, 16.4% for Hispanics, 8.7% for blacks, and 5.9% for whites. Hispanics had 3-fold higher odds of being discharged home to self-care, and blacks had about 50% higher odds of being discharged home to self-care after adjusting for age, sex, Klabunde's comorbidity index, income, year of admission, type of hip fracture, surgical stabilization procedure, and length of hospital stay. The higher rate of discharge home to self-care among minorities underscores the risk of suboptimal outpatient rehabilitative care among minorities with hip fracture.
