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?
