Mortality risks associated with emergency admissions during weekends and public holidays: an analysis of electronic health records

Mortality risks associated with emergency admissions during weekends and public holidays: an analysis of electronic health records: Adjustment for routine test results substantially reduced excess mortality associated
with emergency admission at weekends and public holidays. Adjustment for patient-level
factors not available in our study might further reduce the residual excess mortality,
particularly as this clustered around midday at weekends. Hospital workload was not
associated with mortality. Together, these findings suggest that the weekend effect
arises from patient-level differences at admission rather than reduced hospital staffing
or services.
