Abstract

Patients who are diagnosed with unstable angina (UA) or non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (non-STEMI) are at risk for repeated acute cardiac episodes resulting in emergent rehospitalization. American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology practice guidelines recommend use of risk stratification prior to hospital discharge; however, the importance of identifying patients’ social support for follow-up planning is not emphasized.
