Switching gears to our next category, this nursing home did not perform well in this area either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. Nursing homes that don't 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. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility administered the vaccine to only 88.26816 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.
