aThis percentage is composite of data from the quarterly and annual MDS assessment forms completed for residents. For these states both the annual MDS and quarterly MDS form contain data on multiple types of infections. See Table 1.89a for states where the quarterly MDS assessment forms only contain data on UTIs.

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.
