Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility well overall, we want to point out its decent grade of B- in the category of nursing. Nursing ratings are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. While this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did well in this metric. This is often a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of turning a resident at least once a day.
