This includes a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we considered in this area is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is not a bad score. Our nursing rating is largely based on a facility's nurse staffing. This place averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is a very low figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. While this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality metrics.

The last area we scored is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is a very poor score. Facilities that don't score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated just 75.42857 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.
