Moving on to our last area, this facility was given a respectable nursing score of C.

This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is significantly below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. While this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this subcategory. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning patients even once per day.
