Abstract

Objectives: To determine the association between cardiology consultation and evidence-based care for nursing home (NH) residents with heart failure (HF). Participants: Hospitalized NH residents (n = 646) discharged from 106 Alabama hospitals with a primary discharge diagnosis of HF during 1998-2001. Design: Observational. Measurements of Evidence-Based Care: Preadmission estimation of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) for patients with known HF (n = 494), in-hospital LVEF estimation for HF patients without known LVEF (n = 452), and discharge prescriptions of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers (ACEIs or ARBs) to systolic HF (LVEF
