Weekend Admissions and In-Hospital Mortality Core

Do patients admitted to Canada's acute care hospitals on weekends have a higher risk of dying than those admitted on weekdays? Recent studies in the United Kingdom and elsewhere have suggested that patients in certain groups have a higher death rate when they are admitted to hospital on a Saturday or Sunday. Weekend Admissions and In-Hospital Mortality takes a look at this issue and explores factors at patient and system levels that might help explain the results.
