This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes.

This grade is considered to be a meaningful assessment of the facility's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home.
