Long-term care grades are typically used to gauge a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a skilled nursing facility. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated just 81.7942 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.56 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home.
