OTs help determine the most effective hospital discharge placement for patients. By identifying patients’ personal needs and risk factors for readmission, OTs may accurately predict discharge placement for patients with a low socioeconomic status. This retrospective study found the likelihood of readmission was 2.63 times higher for those patients with low socioeconomic status who did not follow the OT discharge recommendations.
