“The study Hospital Length of Stay and Readmission for Individuals Diagnosed With Schizophrenia: Are They Related? is CIHI’s first to examine the relationship between initial length of stay and readmission for patients hospitalized for schizophrenia. It reveals that the longer a schizophrenia patient stayed in hospital initially, the less likely he or she was to be subsequently readmitted for any mental illness in the 12 months following discharge.”
