Abstract

Background: Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder which may lead to hospital readmissions and can impose increasing costs to the medication system. This study
investigated factors affecting readmission of patients with type II diabetes in selected hospitals in Kermanshah in 2013.
Methods: This is a cross-sectional and descriptive analytic study with 140 diabetic patients. Participants were selected based on available sampling from the three hospitals of
Imam Khomeini, Taleghani and Imam Reza. Data collection tools included questionnaires on demographic characteristics, adherence to treatment and the stressful event. Reliability of the study measured r=0.84. Data were analyzed with SPSS- 16 software and used with x2, ANOVA and t-test.
Results: The most frequency rate of readmission for women pertained to those who had experienced one readmission before and for men, those who had a record of more than two
readmissions. Results of chi-square showed significant relationships between readmission rates and age, occupation, number of children, exercise, smoking, drug abuse, and history of disease (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: Findings of this study revealed that most readmissions for patients with diabetes were for those above 60 years old and with multi-risk factors. And that the
recurrent readmissions of diabetic patients can be avoided by allocating a suitable treatment-rehabilitation approach.
