Additionally, this facility also received favorable long-term care scores in our assessment. Indeed, we awarded it one of our more favorable scores in that category, with a grade of B.

On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a dangerous illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Our final area is nursing, in which we awarded this facility a C in this category. We assessed the skill-level of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time the nurses were with patients, in calculating our rating in this category. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat alarming figure which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
