This means a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. It does not look like this facility submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

The next area we assessed is long-term care, where this facility was given an abysmal score in this category as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is obviously a major concern. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care likely don't provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer.

Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
