Quality Report - Pneumonia

Pneumonia is a serious lung infection that may cause difficulty breathing, fever, cough and fatigue. Because pneumonia is a serious illness, it is important that the hospital identify these patients as quickly as possible to ensure that they receive the best possible treatment in a timely manner. The quality rating for pneumonia measures the hospital's compliance with the recommended treatment.

 *Percentages are based on data reported by The Joint Commission from July 2012-June 2013 (most recent available).
