Table 4 The role of high risk LACE index on predicting unplanned readmissions and Emergency revisits after index discharge

From: Using the LACE index to predict hospital readmissions in congestive heart failure patients

  High risk for readmission N = 226 Low risk for readmission N = 27 OR (95% CI) P value
Within 30 days after index discharge     
  Hospital unplanned readmission, % 24.34 25.93 0.91 (0.36-2.28) 0.856
  ED revisits, % 15.04 0 N/A 0.030
  Mortality, % 0.44 0 N/A 0.729
Within 60 days after index discharge     
  Hospital unplanned readmission, % 30.97 40.74 0.65 (0.28-1.47) 0.304
  ED revisits, % 22.12 7.42 3.55 (0.81-15.50) 0.074
  Mortality, % 0.44 0 N/A 0.729
Within 90 days after index discharge     
  Hospital unplanned readmission, % 41.05 48.15 0.75 (0.33-1.67) 0.486
  ED revisits, % 28.32 11.11 3.16 (0.91-10.86) 0.055
