One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A-. The nursing grade assesses several datapoints, however, the primary one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas.

Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning a resident even once per day.
