Very few nursing homes provide this quantity of nursing care to their patients. Out of this total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. On top of providing high levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in several of the quality-based metrics we looked at. With below five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared as well as any nursing home the country in this category.
