Three California hospitals lag in pneumonia report
A recent report shows that several hospitals in California posed a significantly higher mortality rate for pneumonia patients than the more than 260 other medical centers in that state. California hospitals are not alone, though - as many as four million people are admitted to U.S. hospitals each year for treatment of the disease, prompting strong support of specific measures that will reduce the number of pneumonia-related deaths.
