Postoperative Overtriage to an Intensive Care Unit Is Associated With Low Value of Care

Annals of Surgery

Tyler J. Loftus, et. al


Objective: We test the hypothesis that for low-acuity surgical patients, postoperative intensive care unit (ICU) admission is associated with lower value of care compared with ward admission. Background: Overtriaging low-acuity patients to ICU consumes valuable resources and may not confer better patient outcomes. Associations among postoperative overtriage, patient outcomes, costs, and value of care have not been previously reported.
