Once we assessed the amount of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is what we like to see.

Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
