One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In fact, nursing ended up being its best category. In that category, we awarded this facility an A. In determining our nursing ratings, we analyze both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving patients at least once a day.
