30-Day Outcomes

Measures of 30-day unplanned readmission show when patients who have had a recent hospital stay need to go back into a hospital again within 30 days of their discharge. Below, the rates of unplanned readmission for each hospital are compared to the U.S. national rate. The rates take into account how sick patients were before they were admitted to the hospital.

Measures of 30-day mortality show when patients die within 30 days of admission to a hospital. Below, the mortality rates for each hospital are compared to the U.S. national rate. The rates take into account how sick patients were before they were admitted to the hospital.
