UK hospital death rate higher for weekend admissions


Anonymous | 3-Feb-2012 12:36 pm It is a fair few years since I was inside a hospital, but are you someone who works in one - in the mid 1990s hospitals seemed to almost empty of doctors at weekends ! By the way, i heard comment about this on R4 this morning, and the outcomes are apparently worse even for planned weekend admissions, not just for weekend emergencies.
