Where does this data come from?
The patient satisfaction data on this site is reported quarterly to U.S. Department
of Health and Human Services.
Data are for July 2010 through June 2011, released May 2012.
If patients needed medicine for pain during their hospital stay, the feedback survey asked how well their pain was kept under control. "Pain was well controlled" means their pain was well controlled and that the hospital staff did everything they could to help patients with their pain.
Percent of patients said their pain was "always" well controlled.
