Typologie des hospitalisations multiples de patients diabétiques au CHU de Grenoble

Abstract : Some diabetic patients appear to be readmitted for the same reasons over the years that questions about the relevance and impact of these repeated hospitalizations. Caregivers feel a sense of failure associated with a loss of motivation deal with these patients. What really is this phenomenon? This retrospective study over the period January 2006-May 2011 has identified that patients concerned by multiple hospitalizations (at least two hospitalizations) represent 1/5 of patients admitted between the dates in diabetology unit of Grenoble University Hospital, and correspond 40% of stay. Within this population: 32% of patients with type 1 diabetes and 64% of patients with type 2 diabetes, a majority of patients affected by two or three visits, diabetes ancient and complex, many recurrent reasons of hospitalizations that seem yet sensitive to upstream prevention. Four major problems were found and analyzed: the need to modify the therapeutic strategy, problems related to diet, difficulties to adhere to the proposed therapeutic management, and other difficulties that affect diabetes control (achieving a physical activity, perform certain acts necessary for the management of the disease and adjust to life situations, emotional factors). They can be subject to targeted interventions and hospitalization time could be considered as time-specific primer or "remobilization" structured in a stay dedicated to envisage the construction of a custom project in partnership and complementary to ambulatory cares.
