You’ll be putting just part of the load on this hanger, given the beam is also supported at the other end somewhere. Shear strength of a single nail is into the thousands of pounds, and you are very unlikely to put much stress in the direction that would pull them out of the wall. As long as the wood isn’t rotten, I’d say you’re ready to lounge.
