a Pain during a 7 day period that was excruciating at any time or moderate, among residents experiencing daily pain.

b The 2004 data reflect care for period 7/1/04 to 9/30/04; 2002 data reflect care for period 4/1/02 to 6/30/02.

c A facility had to have at least 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.
