"Children with asthma who live in single-parent homes are 50 percent more likely to return to the hospital for treatment within a year than those who live in two-parent homes, a new study finds. Kids from families whose annual income was less than $60,000 a year were also more likely to be readmitted, as were kids from homes with 'time constraints.' The findings suggest that financial strain and competing priorities in single-parent homes are major issues, the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center researchers said." (11/07/11)
