The most heavily weighted factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place North Carolina in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning a resident even once per day.

You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports.
