In this PX Advisor feature article, HealthStream takes a look at the practice of resuscitation. Many of us have perceptions from popular television shows that resuscitation is almost always effective; however, the truth is that we are really not as good at resuscitating as you might think. Currently, we are only able to revive about 19% of those with in-hospital cardiac arrest.
Studies have shown that there are a number of processes that occur during the inpatient stay and in the early stages of post-discharge care that do impact readmission rates. Most hospitals are focusing their improvement efforts in these areas. The following table identifies some of these common process breakdowns.
Hospitals with readmission rates that exceed the national average are penalized by a reduction in payments across all of their Medicare admissions—not just those which resulted in readmissions. CMS began imposing penalties in FY2013 when the maximum penalty was 1% of the hospital’s base inpatient claims.
The key is to take multiple steps to prevent a readmission. We need to be focused on plans for discharge as soon as the patient is admitted. You can’t wait until the day before. You need to try to have everything in place before the patient leaves the hospital.
