Historical

The next area we assessed was nursing, in which this facility was awarded a grade of B-. While this wound up being its poorest category score, this is still not the end of the world. Nursing scores are based largely on quantity of nursing care available. This facility provides only 0 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below average. Finally, we like to look at quality-based statistics, such as the percentage of residents who suffered pressure ulcers and major falls. These data points are decent measures of the quality of nursing care.
