In our final category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its long-term care grade. This topped off a first-rate report card. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. This nursing home's vaccination data were a bit weaker than some of the other data points in this category, such as its number of nursing hours per resident. It provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 88.77006 percent of its patients. We would love to see some improvement herein this statistic in the future. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.91 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
