Activity Steps


Community-acquired pneumonia, the most common cause of infectious death globally occurs frequently and with high morbidity and costs along with high mortality. Quality improvement initiatives for hospitals and skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) include decreasing unplanned inpatient pneumonia readmissions within 30 days of discharge from the index hospitalization. This study focused on an evidence-based pneumonia care bundle directed at patients who are at high risk for a hospital readmission from a skilled nursing facility (SNF). The authors? concluded that this pneumonia care bundle is affordable, not complicated to use, and easy to replicate.

Learning Objectives

After completing this continuing education activity you will be able to:

  1. Describe the rates, risk factors, and impact of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP)-related hospital readmissions on health care systems.
  2. Identify evidence-based pneumonia care interventions endorsed by the Infectious Diseases Society of America/American Thoracic Society (IDSA/ATS).
  3. Recognize the outcomes of an evidence-based, case manager-led pneumonia care bundle at SNFs on 30-day hospital readmissions for pneumonia.

Learning Outcomes

Seventy-five percent of participants will be able to demonstrate knowledge of 30-day hospital readmission outcomes in a study implementing a case manager-led pneumonia care bundle in skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) by achieving a posttest score of 70% or greater.
