Hospital Length of Stay in Non-STEMI Patients


Duke University research suggests that patients with non-STEMI who spend more than 2 days in the hospital after their event appear to have more comorbidities and in-hospital complications than those with shorter lengths of stay (LOS). Patients with longer LOS were also less likely to receive evidence-based medications or PCI.
