This facility provides an incredible 5.5 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Out of that total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. On top of looking at levels of nursing care, we also looked at a few quality measures in determining our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
