Severity of illness and the weekend effect - Authors' reply.

Abstract:
In their letter, William J Kostis and Abel E Moreyra suggest that the poor availability of detailed data cannot explain all differences in outcomes between patients admitted at weekends and on weekdays. There is no intrinsic causal mechanism for a named day to lead to higher mortality risk and, therefore, some data clearly must exist that explain how the higher risk arises.
