Appendix D: Trending Results by Respondent Characteristics

(1) Work Area/Unit

Note 1: Results are from 359 hospitals. The number of hospitals and respondents in each breakout category is shown in each table (e.g., the number of hospitals and respondents by 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.

Note 2: Only hospitals that had at least five respondents in the particular work area/unit and at least three respondents to a particular question for both the previous and most recent administrations of the survey are included.

Note 3: Respondents who selected "Many different work areas/No specific work area" or "Other" or who did not answer (missing) are not included.

(3) Interaction With Patients

Note 1: Results are from 359 hospitals. The number of hospitals and respondents in each breakout category is shown in each table (e.g., the number of hospitals and respondents by interaction with patients).

(4) Tenure in Current Work Area/Unit

Note 1: Results are from 359 hospitals. The number of hospitals and respondents in each breakout category is shown in each table (e.g., the number of hospitals and respondents by tenure in current work area/unit).
