In doing so, we look at a nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities.

In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care offered.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we graded was long-term care. Sadly, it received an F in this area, which is an abysmal grade. This is clearly a major disappointment. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 92.81438 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat lower than we anticipated but still a respectable percentage. To our surprise, this facility actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
