Pneumonia Care

 

Pneumonia is a respiratory disease caused when germs -- either bacteria or viruses -- create an infection in a patient's lungs, allowing them to fill with mucus. That makes breathing harder and can starve a patient's body of needed oxygen. To treat this serious lung infection, we follow treatment plans that have been shown by medical research to save and improve lives.

Why is the data on this website from several months ago?

The government releases the information on its Hospital Compare website (http://www.hospitalcompare.hhs.gov/); however, it takes some time for CMS to gather and study the information, so the information is several months old. The most recent comparitive data available is for the period between April 2013 and March 2014.
