Unfortunately, this category hurt the facility's overall grade a bit. For residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure.

Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.
