Penalty for readmission.

  1. 0 As I understand, acute care hospitals are financially penalized for high readmission rates within 30 days of discharge.

    I was wondering, does this apply to LTAC hospitals as well? If I discharge a patient as an LTAC nurse, and they are readmitted to an acute care hospital, who is penalized for this readmission?

    The LTAC hospital is if their overall readmission rate is high.
