Pneumonia Care



At High Point Regional, our pneumonia care staff understand treating this illness with speed and precision, especially upon initially arriving at the hospital. We are continually looking for ways to improve in these areas, and treat each individual pneumonia patient swiftly and thoroughly.

Pneumonia is a serious lung infection that causes difficulty breathing, fever, cough and fatigue.

These quality measures show some of the recommended treatments for pneumonia.

Measures - Data last updated June 2010

Antibiotics are medicines that treat infection, and each one is different.
Hospitals should choose the antibiotics that best treat the infection type for each pneumonia patient.

A pneumonia (pneumococcal) vaccination can help prevent pneumonia in the future, even for patients who have been hospitalized for pneumonia.

Smoking Cessation counseling is essential to prevention of pneumonia and decreasing the risk of other healthcare issues.  High Point Regional Hospital is committed to providing our patients a smoke free environment.
