  1. We received 5 or more physician responses from 69 hospitals. We did not have hospital characteristic data for all hospitals; thus some categories total less than 69.
  2. In calculating the % response rate for categories where missing values were present, the denominator was reduced by the # of hospitals for which there was a missing value.
