This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is a very low figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. Although this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this subcategory. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving a patient even once per day.
