Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we looked at.

Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital.
