Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are kept in good health. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 86.94158 percent of its patients, which is somewhat lower than we anticipated. Clearly, this nursing home 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 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
