Note 1: Hospitals that did not ask respondents to indicate their work area/unit were excluded from these breakout tables. In addition, respondents who selected “Many different work areas/No specific work area,” “Other,” or did not answer (missing) were not included.

Note 2: The number of hospitals and respondents in each work area/unit is shown. The number of hospitals is based on: 1)hospitals that asked respondents to indicate their work area/unit (not all hospitals asked this question), and 2) whether the hospital had at least 1 respondent in a particular work area/unit. However, the precise number of hospitals and respondents corresponding to each data cell in a table will vary because hospitals may have omitted a specific survey item and because of individual nonresponse/missing data.
