Readmission Rate

  • An unplanned readmission means a person had to be readmitted to the same hospital or another hospital within 30 days of being discharged. A low readmission rate shows that the hospital is preventing complications, educating patients about what to do after discharge, and helping patients transition from the hospital to the home, nursing home, or rehabilitation setting. A lower score is better. A score of less than 1 means our readmissions were lower than expected.
