​Discharge Abstract Database (DAD) Codes included in this clinical category:

B15: Pneumonia

Concept

Pneumonia identified during a hospital stay, excluding aspiration pneumonia.

Notes

  1. When both aspiration pneumonitis and pneumonia are coded on the same abstract, the event will be assigned to B16: Aspiration Pneumonia.
  2. Pneumonia due to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) or vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) can also be included in B18: Infections due to Clostridium difficile, MRSA or VRE.
