This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Although this nursing home didn't have as many nursing hours per resident as many other nursing homes we looked at, it was still better than average in the area of avoiding major falls. This is usually a good indicator of how carefully a nursing home's nursing staff is tending to its patients. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
