Our objective is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. We weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final statistic we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community.

The next area we assessed is long-term care. We gave this nursing home a D for our long-term care category, rendering this the facility's weakest grade. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is higher than the average nursing home. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
