It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Very few nursing homes received an A- or higher in in each area we assessed. With our short-term care assessment, we endeavor to forge a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this category is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
