★★★★★ Much Above Average

Registered nurses (RNs) are licensed healthcare professionals who are responsible for the coordination, management and overall delivery of care to the residents. Some nursing home residents who are sicker than others may require a greater level of care, and nursing homes that have more RN staff may be better able to meet the needs of those residents.

Staffing hours per resident per day is the total number of hours worked by the staff member(s) divided by the total number of residents. It doesn't necessarily show the number of nursing staff present at any given time, or reflect the amount of care given to any one resident.

Nurse aides aren't considered “licensed nurse staff” and aren't included in the calculation for “total number of licensed nurse staff hours per resident per day.

Physical therapists (PTs) are licensed healthcare professionals who help residents gain or maintain physical function. PT staffing hours aren't included in the overall staffing rating for nursing homes. This measure shows the average time PTs spend providing care to residents throughout the nursing home.
