Discharge from the hospital to long-term care or home health care occurs more often among AORC-associated hospitalizations than is found among hospitalizations for all causes. This is true regardless of sex or age. Among the 10 AORC subgroups, discharge to home was more frequent and similar to that among all hospitalizations among those with fibromyalgia, diffuse connective tissue disease, and spondylarthropathies.
