This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
