Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. Although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did very well in this metric. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of turning residents more frequently.
