It is my understanding that a patient that is re-admitted to the hospital within 30 days - for any reason - counts as a " hit" on our re-admission rate.  I'm sure that others have voiced that this seems very unfair. It makes sense that if someone had hip surgery and had a complication related to that issue - it should be tracked.  But if the same person then has a hear attack within 30 days of discharge for a hip surgery - then that seems unfair.
