This facility provided the vaccine to 99.729 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a life threatening health condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
