The 241 hospitals punished 3 years in a row for high infection rates

Earlier this month, CMS announced 769 hospitals are seeing Medicare payments cut in fiscal year 2017 for high rates of hospital-acquired conditions as part of the HAC Reduction Program.

The HAC Reduction Program is in its third year. Of the 769 hospitals experiencing a 1 percent cut in Medicare payments for fiscal year 2017, 241 of them have seen their Medicare payments cut in each year of the program. That means nearly a third of hospitals seeing Medicare payments cut for high rates of HACs this year are repeat offenders, three times over.

Becker's analyzed a database from Kaiser Health News to find those 241 hospitals. They are listed below, alphabetically by state.
