PURPOSE: Given the penalties associated with re-admission following index pneumonia admissions, knowing patient characteristics associated with re-admission is important. We therefore sought to identify distinguishing characteristics in patients who were re-admitted (READMIT) versus not readmitted (NO-READMIT) within 30 days of discharge following a hospitalization for pneumonia.
