A diabetes webinar hosted by the American Hospital Association and sponsored by Glytec showcased why hypoglycemia prevention is imperative to the safety of patients and to the economics of healthcare delivery.
Featured speakers, Dr. Richard Pratley of Florida Hospital System and Dr. Steven Edelman of UC San Diego Health, recently delivered a unified message to several hundred senior healthcare professionals attending an American Hospital Association webinar: Hypoglycemia [low blood sugar] in the hospital is a major patient safety risk with significant clinical and financial implications. A case study presented by Pratley further revealed that insulin-managed patients who experience severe hypoglycemia, or blood sugar less than 40 mg/dL, have longer stays, higher readmission and mortality rates, and an overall cost of care $10,405 greater than patients whose blood sugar remains in the normal range.
