This nursing home provided the vaccine to 95 percent of its residents, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital.

Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

A facility could be doing a lot worse when it's lowest grade still is better than most nursing homes. Our nursing grade includes many components, most of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of turning a resident even once per day.
