30-Day Outcomes

Measures of 30-day 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 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 death 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.

Heart Attack

Rate of Readmission for Heart Attack Patients

The rates displayed in this table were calculated from Medicare and VA data on patients discharged between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2012. They do not include people in Medicare Advantage (like an HMO or PPO) plans.

Rate of readmission for heart attack patients shows a comparision between the 30-day readmission rates for the selected hospitals, and the U.S. National Rate of readmission for heart attack patients. These comparisons take into account how sick patients were before they were admitted to the hospital and differences in readmission rates that might be due to chance.
