Turning to the final area, this facility received an extremely favorable long-term care score. While this was not quite as strong as several of its other category grades, this is still one of our more impressive grades a facility can receive.

On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 96.969696 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a life threatening health condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance.

It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
