IQR = interquartile range; ICU = intensive care unit; –Whitney test. Two patients who were transferred to the ICU were excluded from the analysis. -Wallis test; significant differences in pairwise comparisons between follow-up units with Mann–Whitney tests using Bonferroni-corrected values: Home versus ward (), home versus ICU (), and ward versus ICU ().
