Our purpose is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities.

The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the next category, we gave this facility a D in our long-term care category. This is the facility's least impressive category score. Unfortunately, this score hurt the nursing home's overall profile to a certain degree. Facilities that do not fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this facility gave the vaccine to only 55.90062 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.
