This facility vaccinated 78.0543 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be slightly less than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.67 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes.
