CMS has established important performance measures for pneumonia management. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) directs CMS to recover payments made to hospitals for readmissions within 30 days of discharge for three conditions: heart attack, pneumonia, and heart failure. So keeping patients from acquiring pneumonia and teaching them how to effectively treat pneumonia is key.

This 28 page, colorful booklet describes the causes of pneumonia, the prevention of pneumonia and the treatment plan, including the use of nebulizers and oxygen. It engages patients to describe their goals and assists them in managing their illness by prompting them to track their symptoms through an easy to use temperature, symptom and activity log. Additional logs include medication and diet log.

This booklet is written in English.
