Emergency readmissions within 28 days indicator

Percentage of patients who were readmitted as emergencies

How is the Trust doing?

Your browser does not support this graph; however, you can still view the statistics in the table below.

Rolling year to date (February 2019 – January 2020) 5.9%
Rolling 3 years (February 2017 – January 2020) 8.7%

* Data runs one month in arrears.

Lower percentage indicates better performance.

The percentage of patients readmitted as emergencies within 28 days following first-time, isolated CABG remains within the range of expected variation.

Why is this indicator important?

The percentage of patients readmitted to hospital with 28 days of discharge following their operation can indicate early complications after discharge and how appropriate the original decision made to discharge was. Some emergency readmissions are to be expected given the complex nature of the patients treated by the Trust.

How do we measure this indicator?

The percentage of patients readmitted as emergencies within 28 days of discharge from hospital following first-time, isolated CABG remains stable. This also includes patients readmitted as emergencies to other hospitals within the West Midlands region.
