With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home Virginia in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving a resident even once per day.

Grade: A
