This study explores predictors of occupational competence and hospital readmission for clients with chronic conditions in acute care. Self-care function (Î² = 0.43, p = .01) and environmental impact (Î² = –.38, p = .01) significantly predict occupational competence. Functional cognition (OR = 2.19, p = .04) and occupational competence (OR = 0.81, p = .02) significantly predict hospital readmission. OTs should consider standardized measures of these predictors to facilitate successful discharge home.
