Turning to our next area, this nursing home also received a grade of B for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this area. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 99.13043 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a life threatening illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Moving on to the next area, this facility was given a B- in nursing, which we consider to be an acceptable rating. Our nursing grade assesses a handful of data points, however, the main consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided just 0 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a place has quality controls in place.
