Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists.

Although this turned out to be its least impressive category grade, this is still a middle of the pack score. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 92 percent of its residents, which is a few points lower than we anticipated. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
