Schuberth JL, Elasy TA, Butler J, Greevy R, Speroff T, Dittus RS, Roumie CL. Effect of short call admission on length of stay and quality of care for acute decompensated heart failure. Circulation. 2008 May 20; 117(20):2637-44.
Admission to short call is predictive of increased length of stay, a decreased number of diuretic doses, and delays in the timing of diuretics among patients with acute decompensated heart failure. Additional studies are needed to clarify the impact of short call admission on inpatient quality of care.
