In tonight's Healthier Me, nearly 1 in 5 hospitalized patients is readmitted or visits the emergency room within a month of their discharge.


     In a new study from Yale University, researches looked at patients who were discharged from hospitals in three states. They found that 18% had to go to the ER or be readmitted to the hospital within thirty days of their discharge; patients on Medicare had even higher readmission rates.
