Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

This research used electronic health-record data to identify how often OT’s discharge recommendations were followed in the acute-care hospital setting. We used sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy analyses to compare the OT’s discharge recommendations on initial evaluation to the physician’s discharge instructions. Accuracy was significantly varied between younger and older adults, depending on discharge location.
