The nursing score consists of many subcategories, but the paramount consideration is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is significantly below average. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls.
