Abstract

Authors’ conclusions: infants discharged early after birth were more likely to be admitted within 28 days. The introduction of postnatal minimum length of stay policies was associated with a long-term reduction in neonatal hospital readmission rates.

Reviewers’ commentary: with the current findings, general conclusions about neonatal early discharge should not be drawn as there could be subgroups with different behaviors.
