Abstract

Preventable adverse patient outcomes and hospital characteristics in rural versus nonrural US hospitals under the new Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services reimbursement policy were examined using the American Hospital Association Annual Survey and Hospital Compare data. Under the new Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services policy, rural hospitals tended to have fewer hospital-acquired conditions than nonrural hospitals except for patient falls. Case mix was consistently related to falls after controlling for hospital characteristics.
