abstract

  • Investigators and clinicians should use caution in using severity-of-illness measures developed for acutely ill patients to describe critically ill patients admitted to long-term care units. As clinical practice and research focus more on these latter patients, development of adequately performing severity-of-illness measures appropriate to this patient population will be needed.
