Some encouraging news out of the state's nursing homes.

The number of nursing home residents living in pain is down significantly since 2002.

A survey from 2 years ago found one in 7 residents lived in chronic pain.

But a recent Medicare-Medicaid report of 32 homes now finds 1 in 14 live in pain.

Nationwide, pain problems fell 38 percent.
