Pneumonia Readmissions Ratio
Hospitals and other providers are working toward preventing complications that can lead to avoidable readmissions.

This graph was provided by Quails Health, the Quality Improvement Organization for Idaho and Washington. The Ratios are calculated from the posted Hospital Compare data which covers a three year period (currently through June 2010). Excess readmissions ratio is >1%. Tri-State Hospital's pneumonia readmission rate ranks 4th lowest of all Washington State Critical Access Hospitals.
