When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 98.7013 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
This nursing home also received an A+ for its nursing grade. Our nursing score is primarily associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls.
