This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
In the last area, this nursing home also was given a very strong short-term care score, with an A-. This rounded out an elusive straight A profile.

Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
