This area is considered to be a useful assessment of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists.

This nursing home vaccinated 96.63866 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is very impressive.

Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nursing homes with better scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor dings are not the end of the world.
