Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning a patient more often.
