Table 2 Post-discharge mortality and adjusted HRs at 30 days, 60 days, 90 days and 1 year between the two cohorts (pooled 2007–2012 data, n = 144,503)

From: The impact of post-operative sepsis on mortality after hospital discharge among elective surgical patients: a population-based cohort study

Days after discharge Mortality, %   HR (95% CI)
Non-sepsis (n = 142,646) Sepsis (n = 1857) P value Unadjusted Adjusted
30 days 0.7 4.6 <0.001 6.64 (5.23–8.44) 2.75 (2.14–3.53)
60 days 1.2 6.7 <0.001 5.90 (4.67–7.45) 2.45 (1.94–3.10)
90 days 1.5 8.1 <0.001 5.52 (4.40–6.91) 2.31 (1.85–2.87)
1 year 3.8 13.5 <0.001 3.79 (3.25–4.42) 1.71 (1.46–2.00)
  1. Note: The adjusted HRs were derived from Poisson mixed models adjusted for age, sex, country of birth, marital status, severity of illness/co-morbidity, Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA), hospital location, peer hospital group, major surgical procedures and length of stay
