Pneumonia
Readmissions

UTMB defines hospital readmission as patient admission to a hospital within 30 days after being discharged from an earlier hospital stay.

UTMB’s 30-day all-cause readmission rate for patients with pneumonia was about 4% higher (worse) in 2015 than our Academic Medical Center Peers' average. In 2015, just under 15% of PN patients were readmitted to the hospital for illnesses that may or may not have been related their pneumonia.
