Coming next month in JACS and online now: Transferred emergency general surgery patients are at increased risk of death: A NSQIP propensity score-matched analysis

Manuel Castillo-Angeles, MD, MPH; Tarsicio Uribe-Leitz, MD, MPH; Molly Jarman, PhD; and colleagues report in the June issue of the Journal of the American College of Surgeons (JACS) that after rigorous risk adjustment, interhospital transfer status has a small effect on mortality and morbidity in the emergency general surgery population. This could suggest that it is reasonable to transfer patients and that regionalization of care should be encouraged.
