Our nursing score assesses several components, however, the main one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This place provided 3.7 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Roughly one-fourth of these hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most skilled levels of nurses. This is an impressive ratio of skilled nursing care. We weight these hours performed by skilled nurses more in calculating our nursing grades. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
