A Health Foundation report indicates that perhaps over 40% of emergency hospital admissions on the part of permanent care home residents aged ≥65 years could have been avoided with better preventive primary care, community support / NHS care in care homes. Avoidable hospital admissions were often potentially treatable outside of hospitals; and a proportion are asserted to have been the result of poor care or neglect.
