Impaired physical function is a risk factor for hospital readmissions. When patients transition into community settings after hospitalization, impaired physical function may limit ability to participate in routine healthcare appointments and return to occupational, social, or leisure time activities. Yet, restorative interventions, such as skilled rehabilitation, may not be ordered or coordinated at the time of discharge—leaving a potentially modifiable risk factor of functional impairment unaddressed.
