The purpose of this report is to help patients compare Utah hospitals based on percentage of readmitted patients. Avoiding preventable readmissions is complex and requires a team effort among patients, their doctors and hospitals.  Hospital readmission may indicate:

  • Patient did not follow care instructions after a previous hospital stay
  • Problems with coordination of care and medications before, during and after a hospital stay
  • Problems with care during a previous hospital stay.

If you or someone you know needs to go to a hospital, you may find this report helpful when considering where to receive treatment, especially for:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart problems and stroke
  • Hip and knee problems
  • Pneumonia.

Hospitals can vary in terms of the kinds of patients they treat and the percentage of their patients who are readmitted.

Did you know?

  • About 7% of adult hospital patients are readmitted within one month for a reason related to a previous hospital stay (Maternity patients excluded).
  • You can prevent readmission by seeing your doctor after leaving the hospital and carefully following instructions for your care.
