This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. While this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this metric. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving a resident even once per day.
