The Hospital Readmission Reduction Program (Affordable Care Act) From Oct 2011- Oct 2012, CMS is tracking each hospital’s readmission rate. In order to calculate this rate, they are looking at Medicare Fee-for-Service residents that are discharged from the hospital and whether or not they are readmitted within 30 days. The Diagnosis that CMS is Currently tracking on any resident from a nursing facility that is discharged from the hospital with: Heart Failure, Pneumonia, and Acute Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack), COPD will be the next tracked diagnosis. If a resident is discharged from the hospital with a tracked diagnosis, and goes back to the hospital within 30 days for any reason, excluding planned or elective procedures, that counts as a readmission. If a resident is discharged from the hospital with Heart Failure, Pneumonia, Acute Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack) And goes back to the hospital for ANY reason within 30 days, that increases the hospital’s readmission rate and will give them a payment penalty.

Rough Draft for “Quiet Revolutions: The CRNA Scope of Practice” by: Sandra Tunajek, CRNA, ND In the article by Sandra Tunajek "Quiet Revolutions: The CRNA Scope of Practice", Tunajek starts by giving the origins of the first nurse anesthetists in America’s healthcare system.
