aThis percentage is composite of data from the quarterly and annual MDS assessment forms completed for residents. The annual MDS form contains data on multiple types of infections; however the quarterly MDS assessment forms for these states only contain data on UTIs. See Table 1.89b for states where the quarterly MDS assessment forms contain data on multiple types of infection.

bFor period 4/1/02 to 6/30/02.

cA facility had to have at least 20 residents in the denominator for a post-acute measure to be calculated and 30 residents in the denominator for a chronic care measure to be calculated. Therefore the number of facilities may vary for each measure reported in a state.

dTotal for States in table.

DSU - Data do not meet the criteria for statistical reliability, data quality or confidentiality.
