• Corrected Abstract or Commentary: A nurse-run program for congestive heart failure increased time to hospital readmission



The title and conclusion of a recent abstract [A nurse-run program for congestive heart failure increased time to hospital readmission (1)] were worded incorrectly. The nurse-run management program increased time to readmission, not reduced, as stated in the abstract.
