Abstract

Background: Hospital readmission is frequent and considered an adverse health outcome of hospitalisation. Despite the frequency of readmissions, affecting health and wellbeing of older persons, there is still a relatively incomplete understanding of the broader array of factors pertaining to hospital readmission. Only few studies have explored patients’ experiences of conditions and incidents leading to readmission.

Aims: To explore older male patients’ experiences of conditions of life and critical incidents, that over time and across settings pertain to hospital readmission.
