Hospital patients treated by older physicians are more likely to die

Hospital patients treated by older physicians are more likely to die

Quote:
In a national sample of elderly Medicare beneficiaries admitted to hospital with medical conditions, we found that patients treated by older physicians had higher 30 day mortality than those cared for by younger physicians, despite similar patient characteristics. These associations were found among physicians with low and medium volumes of patients but not among those with high volumes.
